N ;EW COLLEGE NEWS RELEASE NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE: Wednesday, p.m., January 15, 1964 A science historian who views science as a creative and inspired activity rather than as a methodical and objective search for truth ex-plains his views on the New college campus Thursday night at 8 in the third lecture of the New Perspectives series. Dr. Derek J. de Sella Price, English born and educated Yale professor, speaks on "Humanistic Scholarship About Science and Technology." Dr. Price is the third lecturer in the series of ten, having been preceded by Dr. Albert Shatzel, former director of the Adler Planetarium, speaking on man and the and Dr. Carroll v. Newsom, mathematician and philosopher, speaking on mathematical models. In the next few weeks there will be lectures by authorities in the fields of communication with dolphins, in general scientific knowledge and in marine biology. Referring to the mythology of science, Professor Price proposes to portray the scientist as he really is and how he has worked for a number of centuries. Yale's Avalon Professor of the History of Science, and chairman of the university's Department of History of Science and Medicine makes the case for the "honorable and hard-working scholarship of analysis and criticism of science." From the trials of Galilee to the contemporary one of Oppenheimer, Dr. Price outlines the relationships of scientists and their theories and discoveries, upsetting a few commonly held beliefs on the way.

Stewart, assistant superintendent of public instruction in Manatee County. A question-and-answer period will follow, and then members of the audience will have an opportunity to meet the speaker.
