This book is a collection of 16 essays about some of the stars of Cambridge University over the last 150 years. The sections on physical and biologic sciences and paleontology I found interesting and readable. The sections on philosophy were tedious and did not give me much of an understanding of what the great contributions to our knowledge meant. OK for scholars but not for the general reading public. Wittgenstein remains a mystery to me.
