HONOUR AND POST GRADUATE CLASSES.
Course of lectures will be delivered to honour and post graduate students at hours to be arranged.
A special course of lectures will be delivered during Michaelmas Term, 1908, by DR. E. N MERRINGTON, on THE METAPHYSICAL BASIS OF ETHICS. In this course the underlying principles of ethics will be studied with a view to determining the essential relation between moral science and metaphysis. In this connection, the relation of ethics to the natural sciences, and especially to psychology, will be considered. The claim of empiricism, naturalism, and positivism, that ethics should be separated from metaphysics, will be critically examined. The thesis of the course is to maintain that ethics is essentially a science of values or worths, and to determine what metaphysical principles are implied in the science, so viewed.
Some previous acquaintance with philosophy is required on the part of those who enter this course. Not less than ten lectures will be given. In addition, a seminar is held for discussion of the main problems. Each student must make a special study of a particular author or tendency, and prepare a thesis on some phase of the subject approved by the lecturer. Intending students should consult the lecturer early in Trinity Term as to their courses of reading.

The Physical Laboratory was designed by Richard Threlfall, M.A., F.R.S., Hon. Fellow of Caius College, Cambridge, then Professor of Physics in the University, and was built under his supervision. The building was commenced in 1886, and completed early in 1888. Considerable additional laboratory accommodation was provided in 1901 by an extension of one side of the building.
The Laboratory was founded for the encouragement of the study of Physical Science, and its object is not only to afford facilities for imparting instruction but also for aiding research.
The course consists of quantitative experiments in the following:
Measurement of Length. Estimation of Mass. Determination of Density. Thermometry and Expansion. Calorimetry. Determination of Musical Pitch. Measurement of Velocity of Sound in the Air and in Solids. Reflection and Refraction of
Light. Total Reflection. Refractive Indices. Elementary Spectroscopy. Double Refraction. Polarisation of Light. Fundamental Experiments of Electro-statics. Electrometer and Galvanometer Measurements. Measurement of Resistance. Electro-magnetic Induction.
