    CAMBRIDGE.—An Arnold Gerstenberg studentship will be offered for competition in the Michaelmas term of 1906. The studentship will be awarded by means of essays. Every candidate must send on or before October 1, 1906, an essay on one of the subjects printed below addressed to Dr. James Ward, Trinity College. The studentship, which will be of the annual value of nearly 90l., will be tenable for two years, upon the condition that at the end of the first year the student's progress in philosophical study is deemed satisfactory by the board of managers. The subjects for essays are:—(1) a philosophical discussion of the doctrine of energy and particularly of the new theory of energetics; (2) a critical examination of Descartes' philosophy of nature; (3) the relation of mathematics and the theory of probability to physics; (4) the theory of psychophysical parallelism; (5) the scope and methods of comparative psychology; (6) the philosophical import of post-Darwinian theories of natural selection.
