Book Of The Week

On Growth And Form
D'Arcy Thompson | Canto | first published 1917; abridged edition 1961

Recommended by Stephen Jay Gould:
"D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson was perhaps the greatest polymath of our century.  P.B. Medawar has called On Growth And Form 'beyond comparison the finest work of literature in all the annals of science recorded in the English tongue'. D’Arcy Thompson’s prose is like a Wagnerian opera. It flows on and on in waves of sumptuous sound, with occasional cadences at climactic moments."

see also a portrait of D'Arcy Thompson by Stephen Wolfram.
