Abstract

[...] surely by now the sciences are for us one common enterprise of communities of men who know one another, work with one another, and are interrelated by a network of bonds of indebtedness stretching between the continents and are beyond disentangling. For a long time now the triumphs have been common, the frustrations shared, and the new problems of growth, specialization, change, novelty, are the shared problems of a common undertaking in which we turn to one another and learn from one another’s problems and mistakes.
