A Latter-Day Rationalist's Lament
Description:
Essay in honor of microbiologist and social activist Andre Lwoff, who won the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine along with Francois Jacob and Jacques Monod, for their discovery of the genetic control over the production of proteins and enzymes. In his autobiography, Luria described Lwoff as "the most eminent microbiologist in France," and the "pillar of the Institut Pasteur." Here, Luria described Lwoff as the prototype of the rational scientist-humanist.
