The book Biology and the new physics : a plea for a consistent philosophy of life" by C. J. Bond contains an edited version of the address given by Bond at the Centenary Meeting of the Leicester Literary and Philosophical Society on 7th October, 1935. It contains an analysis of the impact that the recent discoveries in quantum physics concerning the question of determinism in physics would have on a theoretical biology founded upon a basement of physics. In essence it is an argumentarium to keep old thoughts on free will and the role of God in the creation of the universe. He does so by means of a vision about how the intrinsic indeterminacy of matter -as postulated by quantum mechanics, and seen as the source of mental freedom- is constrained by an environment that overimposes a deterministic behaviour.
