Reviews of Books

Life and Energy, by Walter Hibbert, F.I.C., published by Longmans, Green, and Co., 39, Paternoster Row, London, E.C. A work of great scientific and ethical value, this book is described on the title page as—"An attempt at a new definition of life, with applications to Morals and Religion," and consists of "A revised account of four addresses given at the Polytechnic Institute, Regent Street, London." The author brings an acutely logical and well-trained scientific mind to bear on the profound problem of life, working from the purely material aspect of science up to the consideration of morals and religion, harmonizing the apparent contradictions of life with a skill which is both analytic and synthetic. A perusal of the book is sure to stimulate the intellect and improve the logical faculty. Buy Life and Energy
