Relief of Human Suffering

Dialogues of Alfred North Whitehead. As Recorded by Lucien Price (Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1954), p. 175 (Price speaking; footnote omitted):
"Kirsopp Lake once remarked in my presence that his father, a physician, being asked late in life what had done the most in his lifetime to relieve human suffering, answered, 'Anaesthesia and the decay of Christian theology.' That was in 1922."
