Amazing to think he was born before the Treaty of Versaille and yet was still publishing a few years ago.

May he rest in peace.

Fascinating life.

Interesting point that I think is still the current paradigm in science, esspecially STEM.
"Lovelock was disappointed in the shift in the focus of research in biology from the big picture to the small. The study of life concentrated more on a closer examination of molecules and atoms rather than on whole organisms, with the implication that the whole was never more than the sum of its parts and scientists could figure out how organisms worked by taking them to pieces."
