Studia Varia: (Royal Society of Canada, Literary and Scientific Papers)

Edited by E.G.D. Murray

© 1957

THIS VOLUME contains a selection of articles by Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada on subjects of general cultural interest. The majority of the papers were presented at the annual meeting of the Society in 1956, but for the first time in the history of the Society, they are being issued in a volume available to the general public, instead of being restricted to the Society's Transactions.
It has long been a cause for regret to many who were aware of the stimulating and authoritative nature of many Royal Society papers on generalized topics that they were not readily available to the general reader. This volume is an effort on the part of the Society to broaden its influence, to share with educated readers everywhere the contributions which its Fellows make to literary and scientific thought.
Authors and articles are as follows: Pierre Daviault, "Franҫais et anglais du Canada"; Desmond Pacey, "The Canadian writer and his public, 1882-1952"; Northrop Frye, "Preface to an uncollected anthology"; Jacques Rousseau, "L'Indien de la forêt boréale, élément de la formation écologique"; W. H. Watson, "Perspective towards the future in physics"; Vincent Bladen, "Some reflection on the classical literature of political economy"; T. A. Goudge, "Progress and evolution"; J. S. Thomson, "The existential philosophy"; Pierre Dansereau, "Language, communication, and culture"; Henry Alexander, "Breaking the language barrier"; Jean-Charles Falardeau, "L'Importance des langues secondes et les sciences de l'homme."
