About this book

Philosophical treatise, based in part on the unpublished thoughts of the late Frank Rigler. This book reaches far into the realms of science history, philosophy and methodology, the significance of science for society, and the research and teaching in universities. It documents that ecologists have collected impressive amounts of observations and facts, but that they have failed to sufficiently identify and formulate theories which go beyond the facts – theories that can be tested and that can predict.
