We used our present-day understanding of cells to define the living state, providing a basis for exploring several general-interest topics: the origin of life, extraterrestrial life, intelligence, and the possibility that humans are unique.

The ideas we proposed in About Life were intended as starting-points for debate we did not claim them as truth but the information on which they were based is currently accepted as scientific fact . What does that mean? What is scientific fact and why is it accepted? What is science and is biology like other sciences such as physics (except in subject m- ter)? The book you are now reading investigates these questions and some related ones. Like About Life, it may particularly interest a reader who wishes to change career to biology and its related subdisciplines.

In line with a recommendation by the British Association for the Advancement of Science that the public should be given fuller information about the nature of science we present the concepts underpinning biology and a survey of its historical and philosophical basis.
