The aim of this paper is, in the first instance, one of clarification. That is, the aim of one whose philosophical vocation is directed not so much to questions of scientific fact, simply as such, as to questions concerning the manner in which the conceptual schemes are employed in science, and to the ways in which results achieved through their employment affect other activities, particularly those bearing upon our ordinary conduct as human beings. But the task of clarification subtends that of conduct: we want to go to our various enterprises with clearer heads so that we may make less confused and more rational decisions of policy.
