For a Barrow, Boyle or Wilkins, a Ray or Grew, science
found its rationale in the tend and all of existence: glorification of
Godů,Ray carries this conception to its logical conclusion, for if Nature
is the manifestation of His power, then nothing in Nature is too mean for
scientific study. The universe and the insect, the macrocosm and
microcosm alike, are indications of "divine Reason, running like a Golden
Vein, through the whole leaden Mine of Brutal Nature." (1968, pp. 634-635).
