An International Zoological Record

Article metrics


PERHAPS you will kindly allow me, as the author of a certain pamphlet on “The Organization of Science,” to say a few words on Mr. Minchin's letter (NATURE, August 18), which naturally had an especial interest for me. I am sorrowfully pleased to find the principles advocated in my pamphlet illustrated so well by concrete instance, and, needless to say, I heartily wish Mr. Minchin success in his endeavour to introduce order into at least one province of the scientific class, seeing that the text of my pamphlet may be exactly summed up in his remark—“A great need … is the intelligent organization of scientific research.”
