"In arranging a book of extracts from the writings of men of science, two methods are possible. Passages may be chosen for their intrinsic interest or for their importance in the history of knowledge, but isolated from the less outstanding work that led up to and followed them. On the other hand, extracts may be taken to illustrate the development of definite subjects in the thought of succeeding ages. This volume is planned on the second method to tell a connected story. We have picked out threads on which to string our anthology of science the ideas of mankind on three problems of transcending importance: (1) the structure of the universe--cosmogony; (2) the nature of matter--atomic theories; (3) the development of life--evolution. Along these three lines we try to trace the thoughts of man from the inspired poetry of the Book of Genesis to the latest revelations of the telescope and the laboratory"--Preface
