by Dennis Chapman , Ph.D.
Berkeley Bve-Fellow. Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge
Something of a ferment pervades the academic world : remuneration is considered to be unsatisfactory and grants for research inadequate. The rapid advance of science has largely altered the research situation in the universities-gone are the days of string and sealing wax-and Dr. Chapman raises the pertinent question: where should we look for the best fundamental research-the universities, research institutes, or industry?

by Thomas Blackburn
Certain difficult experiences can drive the child away from a hostile everyday world, and send him down into the depths of himself. It was Freud who first labelled these depths the Unconscious. But although psychologists have given new names to some of the creatures of this shadowy world, it is still the abode of were-wolf and vampire, the wise witch woman and the talking fish.
Thomas Blackburn describes his childhood journey into these ' forests of the night' and some of the creatures he encountered.
