This massive work is a follow-on to Graham's Science and Philosophy in the Soviet Union , published in 1972. He has added new chapters on human behavior, revised the earlier chapters, deleted old material, and extended the coverage via research and travel through 1985. Graham regrets the Western neglect of Russian philosophy of scienceof the pervasive effect of dialectical materialism on the perspective of both scientist and philosopher. After providing a history and overview of that philosophy in the Soviet Union, he painstakingly traces its effects in genetics, physiology, and psychology, biology, cybernetics and computers, chemistry, quantum mechanics, relativity physics, and cosmology/cosmogony. He has brought together a tremendous amount of information and insight, and specialists in the various fields will certainly find much of interest here. Hilary D. Burton, Lawrence Livermore National Lab., Cal.
