It is clear, based on his work on imprinting, that Lorenz was capable of thinking in a logical and reality-based manner. But having the capability of thinking logically as a scientist does not necessarily ensure that one will arrive at moral conclusions. Beginning a syllogistic process with premises that were prejudicial in nature lead Lorenz to a tragically false conclusion. Dr. Eisenberg’s letter underscores the fact that scientific prowess can be associated with grotesquely misguided sociopolitical views. It is a sad fact that being a scientist, even a Nobel laureate like Lorenz, does not ensure that logic will prevail over prejudice.
