This quantity is a suite of the lectures and discussions at a global colloquium prepared by way of Unesco at the subject matter of technology and Synthesis to mark the get together of the tenth anniversary of the dying of either Einstein and Teilhard de Chardin, additionally the fiftieth anniversary of the speculation of normal relativity. regardless of the nice gulf which lies among the paintings of Einstein and Teilhard de Chardin, the twist of fate within the dates supplied a chance to check the urge in the direction of a synthesis of the clinical and philosophical methods which lies on the very middle of the paintings of those nice males. It used to be, certainly, their universal hope for an all-embracing proposal of the universe which led them either to aim to build a cosmology for the trendy international. So it appeared that the way of honoring Einstein and Teilhard de Chardin was once to rearrange a loose dialogue of the present probability of effecting a syn­ thesis of medical wisdom which might collect a few of brand new most outstanding students, encouraged through the desire to make their study extra significant by means of philosophic mirrored image. The ensuing supply and take of rules may pass a long way past mere commemoration; it will deliver their rules to existence by way of surroundings them opposed to the current nation of science.

The Scientific Synthesis 31 In the first place, there is imbalance between different sciences (or branches of science as they might more modestly be called). This is an imbalance both of prestige and power. Physics, for instance, has the highest status among the sciences. It is regarded by the public - and also, I venture to add, by some physicists - as being in some way more important, more essentially scientific, than biology. It is more exact, we are told, more amenable to mathematical treatment, more rigorously experimental; it has led to a deeper analysis of nature; above all it is more basic.

Encountering the scholar and philosopher in him, the mind is thus attuned to the supreme intellectual symphony in which are blended together the almost godlike freedom of Nature as a whole and the inescapable necessity governing the behavior of all these fragments. " Let me say right away, this is not all of Einstein, nor is it the whole of the great thinker to whom it was granted, as Professor Gonseth has told us, to discover various vital new approaches which opened up fresh avenues in science, nor was it all of the man who often had to fight against the powers of this world, and even against the human implications of that vital piece of the theory of relativity, the equation for converting matter into energy.

I have described the dream, the will and the hope which inspire the mind set upon following the intellectual path of science; but I dare not declare that what our human intelligence is experiencing at the present time corresponds to the expectations of the dream and the will driving it towards realization. Comparing what has actually happened with what was expected, we have to admit that it is somewhat different. The lesson to be drawn from those events, events intimately concerned with the nature of science and intelligence, during a period which we may suppose to have been crucial for intellectual life, is something we shall have to examine and consider, no doubt from many angles, during the course of this colloquium.
