Abstract

(Presented as a part of the Symposium on Man at the Centennial Program of the Iowa Academy of Science, Ames, Iowa April 18, 1975.)

Alexis Carrel, a Nobel laureate of 1912, published a book in 1935 that he titled Man the Unknown. This might have been an appropriate theme for this paper. As Carrel pointed out 40 years ago, although there is much that is known about man, there is need of a much more profound knowledge of ourselves. And not only a knowledge of man as an isolated fragment in the cosmos, but, perhaps even more importantly, a knowledge of man as an integral part of the universe, adapting, adjusting, controlling, struggling, failing, surviving.
