At the same time, Avray Wilson’s scientific background – he read biology at Cambridge during the mid 1930s – instilled an aesthetic necessity for structure and for what he called “vitalist” form. His philosophical interests went much further than following the pre-war tendency to link art and science, seeking and insisting on a transcendentalism to counter the atheist or materialist credo of the post-war existential age.
