Insufficiency, Phallacy or Both This book deals with the question of what role a play, or the theatre, can fulfill as an educational or pedagogic tool in the broad scope of science learning and education. The book contains the texts of two of the author's recent plays, viz. Insufficiency and Phallacy. Almost one fifth of this slim booklet is occupied by Djerassi's preface that is, in its own right, a most useful essay worth reading by any student of the exact sciences.

Ships from and sold by textbooks source. Very few books have dealt with the subject of science-in-theatre and virtually none with. Texts of the author's two recent plays, Insufficiency and Phallacy, are included in their entirety to offer concrete examples of plays dealing with actual (rather than invented) chemistry.

CHEMISTRY IN THEATRE This book examines the questions "What can science do for the theatre?" and "What can the theatre do for science?" which raise challenges for both theatre professionals and scientists. Unusually, this book deals with plays first and foremost as reading material - as texts to be read alone or in dramatic readings - rather than emphasizing performances on the stage. Concrete examples are given to demonstrate the potential pedagogic value of using the dialogic style and plot structure of plays in science, with a special focus on chemistry.

Chemistry World "Chemistry World". Both are highly entertaining and also informative, with well-developed characters and skillful building of tension. The book makes an excellent, stimulating and often provocative read. - Chemistry & Industry "Chemistry & Industry". Insufficiency represents an example from the field of beer and champagne bubbles, where the topics of academic tenure and fashion in chemistry are analyzed, whereas in Phallacy, a case history of the similarities and differences between science and art is presented for debate.

Where possible, Carl Djerassi also cooperated with directors in the production of dramatic performances. Djerassi wrote numerous poems that were published in journals or anthologies.
