John Maddox, who looks after our scientific side, is himself

an atomic physicist and lectured at Manchester. University before joining us. On The Guardian he is given unlimited (well, nearly) scope to follow up promising lines of scientific development, whether it's the low-down on the lemming's lovelife or the latest loggerheading between the neo-Freudians and the neo-neo- Freudians.

This determination to cover the exciting de- velopments of our world even when they demand some attention from the reader is what keeps some people away from The Guardian. Such folk don't care for thought in any form, particularly when it's they who have to do the thinking: and The Guardian is not for them. The Guardian is for readers who have lively minds and like to keep them lively by exercising them from time to time.
