Description

“Limitations of Science” is a vintage treatise on the state and limitations of science in the early twentieth century. John William Navin Sullivan (1886 – 1937) was a literary journalist and popular science writer most famous for his study of Beethoven. He is also responsible for having written some of the earliest non-technical accounts of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, and he was acquainted with many important writers in London in the 1920s, including John Middleton Murry, Aldous Huxley, Wyndham Lewis, Aleister Crowley and T. S. Eliot. Other notable works by this author include “Aspects of Science” (1923), “Aspects of Science: Second Series” (1926), and An Outline of Modern Knowledge (1931). Contents include: “The Expanding Universe”, “The Mystery of Matter”, “The Web of Reason”, “The Nature of Mind”, “The Limitations of Science”, “The Values of Science”, “Towards the Future”, etc. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in the history and development of modern scientific understanding. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
