n^
trur?
Lhat
is
valid
for
men
in
most

all
fields
of

And
he
seeks
the
answer
not
through
straightforward
exposition
and
argument
but
through
the
literary
device
of
a
dialogue.
The
place
is
a
country
cottage
in
Eng-
land;
the
time
is
yesterday
or
tomorrow.
Central
to
the
dialogue
is
Burgeon,
lawyer
and
amateur
philologist,
-who
has
called
the
group
together.
With
him
are
men
from
sevenimportant
areas
of
learn-
ing
and
work:
Hunter,
professor
of
historical
theology
and
ethics;
Ranger,
rocket-research
engineer;
Brodie,
physi-
cist;
Upwater,
research
biologist;
Dunn,
linguistic
philosopher;
Sanderson,
retired
schoolmaster;
and
Burrows,
disciple
of
Freud
and
practicing
psychiatrist.
The
discussion
among
these
men,
con-
tinuing
over
a
two-day
week
end,
forms
the
heart
of
this
book.
Stimulating,
wide-
ranging,
erudite
withoutbeing
preten-
tious,
it
starts
practically
enough
in
aconsideration
of
recent
advances
in
rocketry
and
space
travel.
But
soon
it
has
swung
over
into
a
free,
exciting
discussion
of
deeper
and
more
general
issues:
the
nature
of
scientific
knowledge,
the
origins
and
characteristics
of
rational
thought,the
relation
between
