Abstract

AT the twenty-first annual general meeting of the University Catholic Federation of Great Britain, which took place at Birmingham during April 10-12, three conferences were held on the theme of “Science and Society”. The first conference was concerned with the question, “What is Science?”, and under the chairmanship of Prof. Thomas Bodkin, professor of fine arts in the University of Birmingham, was opened by a paper from Dr. F. Sherwood Taylor, curator of the Museum of the History of Science of the University of Oxford, entitled “An Historical Survey of the Rise of Science”.
