Chesterton as critic of science is a role that had not Been extensively examined until the publication of this book, recently reissued with a new foreword. Chesterton never wrote anything systematically about science, but he did say many important things in passing, which Jaki has drawn out and presented in four broad categories: Chesterton as interpreter of science, antagonist of science, critic of evolutionism and ''champion of the universe.'' He appears to have anticipated much modern thinking about science and its ability to interpret reality. We are left in awe of the prodigality of Chesterton's intellect, the multifaceted nature of his genius. 164 pp.
