Pages where the terms "Historic" (textbooks, papers, people, recommendations) appear on this site, and sections within pages where this disclaimer appears, indicate that the content and scientific understanding are specific to the time of publication. This means that while some scientific descriptions are still accurate, the terminology and interpretation of the developmental mechanisms reflect the understanding at the time of original publication and those of the preceding periods, these terms, interpretations and recommendations may not reflect our current scientific understanding.     (More?

Mark Hill.jpg If like me you are interested in development, then these historic embryology textbooks are fascinating in the detail and interpretation of embryology at that given point in time.

The Interpretation Of Development and Heredity

Edward Stuart Russell
Edward Stuart Russell (1887 – 1954)

A Study In Biological Method


By

E. S. Russell

O.B.E., M.A., D.Sc., F.L.S.


Oxford

At The Clarendon Press 1930


"He said that new systems of nature were but new fashions, which would vary in every age ; and even those who pretend to demonstrate them from mathematical principles would flourish but a short period of time, and be out of vogue when that was determined." Jonathan Swift.

"Allein die Natur giebt dem Beobachter derselben nur Stoff zur Bewunderung der Einfachheit, mit der sie wirkt, und zur Verwunderung iiber die Geneigtheit, mit der der menschliche Witz ein ihm wunderbar scheinendes Phanomen durch unendlich grossere und unbegreiflichere Wunder erklart." Karl Ernst von Baer.

  • Nature alone gives to the observer only to admire the simplicity with which it works, and to marvel at the inclination with which the human joke explains a phenomenon which seems to him to be wonderful, through infinitely greater and incomprehensible miracles.


Preface

I Desire to express my thanks to my friends Professor A. E. Boycott and Mr. G. W. Harris for their critical reading of this book in manuscript, and to Mr. Harris for some of the translations from the German. I am indebted also to Mr. R. G. Collingwood for some sound advice on matters touching philosophy.

E. S. R.
