by V. B. Wigglesworth F.R.S. ,
Quick Professor of Biology
In the University of Cambridge
In this talk (based on a lecture given by Professor Wigglesworth at the Jubilee Conference of the Association of Applied Biologists) the speaker argues that the application of science to human needs calls for qualities in the investigator different from, but not inferior to, those required for research in pure science. Also, he suggests that to ensure the continued production of useful applications, pure science must be free to develop without restriction.

A series of four lectures by Isaiah Berlin
Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford

In his four Northcliffe Lectures on Russian literature and social criticism (originally delivered last autumn at University College, London), Isaiah Berlin speaks about the rise of the Russian intelligentsia, and in particular about its earliest and greatest representatives: Herzen, Belinsky, Turgenev, and Dostoevsky. He describes the life and opinions and the personal relations of this remarkable circle.
