(1)DURING the past ten years, Dr. Sidgwick has built up a reputation, which is perhaps unique amongst chemists, as a reporter whose judgments are based upon an exceptionally wide knowledge of chemical facts and a keen appreciation of the significance of physical theories in their interpretation. He has, moreover, the courage of his convictions, and does not hesitate to express the results of his own independent thinking, even when they are not in agreement with the views held by his colleagues. The publica tion of these lectures, which he delivered at Cornell during his tenure of the George Fisher Baker lectureship, gives to chemists in general the privilege of sharing in a type of instruction which must obviously have been very stimulating to his hearers in Cornell, as well as to his regular classes in Oxford.
