formulate a theory of growth and development that will transcend the particulars of the growing organism. Formulation of the theory would generate new visions and stimulate new techniques for the study of organization in both behavioral and neural functioning. This exciting new day, reflecting as it does the forces of confluence rather than divergence, would also benefit if there appeared in our midst a timely, perceptive philosopher who could interpret, articulate, and give meaning and inspiration to the Age of Scientific Integration, as did the empiricists and pragmatists in the dawning decades of the scientific era.
