STEREOCHEMISTRY AND VITALISM.

STEREOCHEMISTRY AND VITALISM. The sensational presidential address of Sir William Crookes at the late meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, beginning with a prophecy of the failure of the world's wheat supply and ending with what seemed at least an endorsement of or expression of faith in the theories of telepathy, was, it appears, not the only utterance of scientific facts or possibilities that is especially noteworthy and exciting. The address of Professor Japp of Aberdeen, in the Chemical Section, appears also to have at least stirred up comments, and forms the subject of a rather bilious editorial in the London Saturday Review. His subject, which has its interest to medical as well as to scientific readers and to cultured laymen, was the proof of a distinct vital agency or energy as afforded by the facts of stereochemistry, or by the optical effects of the molecular composition of substances. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

The sensational presidential address of Sir William Crookes at the late meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, beginning with a prophecy of the failure of the world's wheat supply and ending with what seemed at least an endorsement of or expression of faith in the theories of telepathy, was, it appears, not the only utterance of scientific facts or possibilities that is especially noteworthy and exciting. The address of Professor Japp of Aberdeen, in the Chemical Section, appears also to have at least stirred up comments, and forms the subject of a rather bilious editorial in the London Saturday Review. His subject, which has its interest to medical as well as to scientific readers and to cultured laymen, was the proof of a distinct vital agency or energy as afforded by the facts of stereochemistry, or by the optical effects of the molecular composition of substances.
