Professor O'Rahilly

Refutes a Scholar.

From Our Own Correspondent DUBLIN

The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies was founded by the State, in recent years, in order to .nake Ireland once moie a centre of scholarship. It speeialises in mathematical science and Celtic studies; and in both spheres it has provided II platform for the greatest experts in the world to give of their best. During ,hese years, when speculative science has been driven from the great Continental

spite's and the British universities, by the dire necessities of war, Dublin has been a centre in which scholarship like an Einstein's has had scope.

One names Einstein. because it is a disciple, or perfecter of Einstein'• work, who has made the most stir here. That is Dr. Erwin Schroedinger, who claims to have achieved a synthesis that escaped Einstein's grasp, and that Einstein, when furnished in America with a statement of what has been done in Dublin, is reported to have approved. However, Dr. Schroedinger has fallen foul of Christian orthodoxy in his book, iust published by the Cambridge University Press, under the title What is Life 7 — The Physical Aspect of the Living Cell. It was as Senior Professor at the Institute that he delivered'in lectures the substance of this Work a year or so ago.

nnlv wben Dr. Sehroedinger's work was accessible in hook form could it be subjected to critical examination and assessed.

Professor O'Rahilly's reviewing the work in the Standard has caused greater stir even than Dr. Schroedinger's work : 0,t demonstrates, with exhauitive documentation, that the work of the Senior Profevor of the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, culm'nates in a completely inacceptable doctrine of pantheism.
