From the cover: “In an age clearly dominated by science, ignorance of science is a form of illiteracy, and few would deny that something must be done to communicate the basic methods, history, philosophy, and facts of science to everyone. This symposium approaches the problem from a point-of-view at once realistic and hopeful. Distinguished contributors — both educationalists and scientists — suggest highly practical ways in which worthwhile science courses may be provided both for non-scientists and for scientists who may be ignorant of aspects of science beyond their own specialization. While headmasters, headmistresses, sixth-form teachers, and training college lecturers will find the book particularly helpful, it will interest all who feel concern at the lack of common ground between scientists and laymen today.”
