BIOLOGY

I must at the outset remark that among the many sciences that are occupied with the study of the living world there is no one that may properly lay exclusive claim to the name of Biology. The word does not, in fact, denote Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson any particular science but is a generic term applied to a large group of biological sciences all of which alike are concerned with the phenomena of life. To present in a single address, even Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson in rudimentary outline, the specific results of these sciences is obviously an impossible task, and one that I have no intention of attempting. I shall offer no more than a kind of preface or introduction to those who will speak Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson after me on the biological sciences of physiology, botany and zoology; and I shall confine it to what seem to me Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson the most essential and characteristic of the general problems towards which all lines Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson of biological inquiry must sooner or later converge.

It is the general aim of the biological sciences to learn something of the order of nature in the living world. Perhaps it is not amiss Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson to remark that the biologist may not hope to solve the ultimate problems of life any more than the chemist and physicist may hope to penetrate the final mysteries of existence in the non living world. What he can do is to observe, compare and experiment with phenomena, to resolve more complex phenomena into simpler components, and to this extent, as he says, to "explain" them; but he knows in advance that his explanations will never be in the full sense of the word final or complete. Investigation can do no more than push forward the Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson limits of knowledge.

The task of the biologist is a double one. His more immediate effort is to inquire into the nature of the existing organism, to ascertain in what measure the complex phenomena Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson of life as they now appear Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson are capable of resolution into simpler factors Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson or components, and to determine as far as he can what is the relation of these factors to other natural phenomena. It is often practically convenient to consider the organism as presenting two different aspects a structural or morphological one, and a functional or physiological and biologists often call themselves accordingly morphologists or physiologists. Morphological investigation has in the past largely followed the method of observation and comparison, physiological investigation that of experiment; but it is one of the best signs of progress that in recent years the fact has come clearly into view that morphology and physiology are really inseparable, and in consequence the distinctions between them, in respect both to subject matter and to method, have largely disappeared in a greater community of aim. Morphology and physiology Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson alike were profoundly transformed by the introduction into biological studies of the genetic or historical point of view by Darwin, who Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson did more than any other to establish the fact, suspected by many earlier naturalists, that existing vital phenomena are the outcome of a definite process of evolution; and it was he who first fully Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson brought home to us how defective and one sided is our view of Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson the organism so long as we do not consider it as a product of the past. It is the second and perhaps greater task of the biologist to Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson study the organism from the historical point of view, considering it as the product of a continuous process of evolution Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson that has been in operation since life began. In its widest scope this genetic inquiry involves not only the evolution of higher forms from lower ones, but also the still larger question of the Biology A lecture delivered at Columbia University in the series on Science, Philosophy and Art November 20, 1907 by Edmund B. (Edmund Beecher) Wilson primordial relation of living things to the non living world... Continue reading book >>
