The lectures have a foreword by Dr. Malcolm Goodridge, president of the New York Academy of Medicine, and an introduction by Dr. Haven Emerson. The subjects of the six lectures are as follows:
I. Humanism and Science, the Linsly R. Williams Memorial Lecture, Alan Gregg, M.D. II. Paracelsus in the Light of Four Hundred Years, Henry E. Sigerist, M.D. III. Psychiatry and the Normal Life, William Healy, M.D. IV. Philosophy as Therapy, Irwin Edman, Ph.D. V. The Promise of Endocrinology, Oscar Riddle, Ph. D. VI. What We Do Know About Cancer, Francis Carter Wood, M.D.
The subjects of these lectures are matters of great interest to the layman and to the physician. Both are indebted to the academy for issuing the lectures in a permanent form, by which the circle of readers will be greatly enlarged. The book making is excellent, and an unusually complete index concludes the little volume.
