The Gene: Time, Space and Spirit--Keys to Scientific Literacy Series.
It has only been since the late nineteenth century that people have understood the mechanics of heredity and the discoveries of genes and DNA are even more recent. This booklet considers three aspects of genetics; time, space, and spirit. Time refers to a sense of history; space refers to geography; and spirit refers to life and thought. Several chapters on the history and concepts of genetics, a time line related to the concepts, a map of the important geography related to these concepts, a glossary of important terms, and a list of several study suggstions are included.
