Dubos, R. The unseen world
René J. Dubos. The unseen world
The world seen through the looking glass – the powerful lens – of a distinguished microbiologist is a stranger would than Lewis Carroll made. It is also infinitely more dramatic when the man behind the microscope is Rene Dubos, whose view of microbes – and of men – is illumined by brilliant creativity and informed humanity.
In The Unseen World, Professor Dubos of The Rockefeller Institute clarifies for scientist and layman alike the dynamic relationships between microbes and all other forms of life. This book, like his work in the laboratory, demonstrates the progress which can be achieved when science and the humanities work together to explore and master the forces shaping man’s environment. The Unseen World is a notable contribution to civilization.
