By thus searching for evidences of Steinbeck's philosophy as he bas outlined it in Sea of Cortez, and illustrated it in his fiction, it can be seen that a coherent philosophy dominates all of Steinbeck's writings. By analyzing this philosophy in terms of the accepted philosophical schools ot thought it can be seen that the theory of biological determinism is consistent with those concepts which are Steinbeck's and its application thereby justified.
