                                                CarrelA Scientist Reflects on Life and Society by Dr. Alexis Carrel

Completed after his death in 1944, Dr. Carrel's "A Scientist Reflects on Life and Society" is a stern wake-up call for civilization to embrace "Rules of Life" that will help humanity continue on as a civilization into the future.

Harsh at times, filled with both science and religion as well as cultural analysis and criticism of pop culture, this beautifully written and poetic manifesto of science, religion and survival is strong philosophical medicine for a sick civilization. And the one thing it isn't is boring.

Dr. Carrel is at once conservative and radical, seeking to renovate society in drastic, but at the same time traditional, ways in order for it to meet the challenges of the Modern Age - an age he described in 1944 that is still shockingly relevant.

Dr. Carrel was behind some of the great surgical advances of the 20th century, including the creation of the first artificial heart with airman Charles Lindbergh.

Quotes from the book:

Each individual contains in himself the whole past of the human race: the defects as well as the qualities of his ancestors.

We must increase the quality, quantity and intensity of our lives.

People become rich, not by saving, but by working and by making the money they have earned work instead of lying idle.

Not to hate one's neighbor is good, but to love him is far better.

The best way not to grow weaker is to increase one's strength.

To preserve life, it is not enough to refrain from destroying it. We must also make it wider, deeper, bolder and more joyful.

Nature smiles on those who are ready to live hard and dangerously
