Summary "The dominant theme of the present book is that the states of health or diease are the expression of the success or failure experienced by the organism in its efforts to respond adaptively to environmental challenges. ... But experience shows that human beings are not passive components in adaptive systems." Professor Dubos illustrates his thesis with examples from many fields of research.-from dust jacket.
