How Beauteous Mankind Is! O Brave New World!


A Decade of Observations and Opinions in Science and Humanism

Dr. F.C. Chen, erstwhile physicist, administrator and director of the Institute of Chinese Studies at the Chinese University, has recently published a collection of essays that he wrote during the first decade of the present millennium. As Shakespeare observed towards the end of his playwright’s career, in a work from which the title of this book is borrowed, Dr. F.C. Chen’s outlook on people, events and things is cautiously optimistic, and doubts are generally balanced by hopeful expectations.


Dr. Chen’s book contains 40 essays selected from his treatises on scientific and cultural history, his observations on world events and happenings in the world of higher education, his personal reflections, as well as speeches and prefaces on diverse subjects. To each of these is added a postscript specially written by the author for this volume. 


This book will certainly impress readers with a lot of wisdom and insight. The author has been associated with the University for close to half a century, having always observed the campus from the vantage point at the top of the heap. What he wrote on people and events on campus will prove to be of particular value with the Chinese University’s 50th anniversary just around the corner.
