Principles and Procedures of University Selection
There are important scientific and technical problems underlying the art of educational selection and guidance: for example, the nature-nurture controversy, and how to assess motivation as well as talent.

In case they should be overlooked in our discussions I propose to say something about them—perhaps to overstate them in order to right the balance—in a gathering of scientists, who may be inclined to underestimate their importance.
