Abstract

BY PROF. DR. J. P. A. MEKKES *) To many the intentions of Calvinistic philosophy rather than its contents have been the motive for questionmg. This is not astonishing, because it is not in the first place this philosophy itself which is at issue, but rather its service. In any case, as one of its first tasks it took up the elucidation of the philosophical presuppositions which exert their influence in the study of the special sciences.

DUYVENE DE WIT, professor of Zoology at the umversity of the Orange Free State, Republic of South Africa, has asked us to introduce his papers to the readers with a concise philosophical review. This, then, leads us to the Held of the
