His accident is a landmark in the history of science and was an important step
along the long road to undermining the vital force theory. “Vitalism” holds that the
processes of life do not follow the laws of physics and chemistry—that the
molecules of life cannot be made in the laboratory. Wöhler and his friend Justus
von Liebig made organic chemistry a systematic science, a feat that “must count
as a revolution equal to (and complementing) the insights of Lavoisier and his
followers four ...

the best by the standards of colleagues at Oxford and Cambridge, Berkeley,
Harvard and M.I.T. Israel is obviously committed to a struggle for survival, which
today means nationalism. But beyond this she represents the international spirit
