tin conversation with J. M. Cohen
On a recent visit to England the Mexican novelist Carlos Fuentes discussed with J. M. Cohen the state of the Latin-American novel today, and in particular its relation to the concept of social realism and to the modern novel in Spain.
In tonight's programme he argues for the view that the Latin-American rovelist must be ' at the same time Balzac and Butor.'

by GUY FREELAND
Philosophers of science are seldom interested in what scientists actually do in their laboratories. Mr. Freeland argues that this ' apparent distaste for the mundane ' has led to the neglect of important features of scientific skill and logic; in particular, the ingenuity of scientists in removing discrepancies between expert-mental results and theoretical predictions.
