Social Relations of Science

THE Council of the British Association has had under consideration the correspondence and leading articles which have recently appeared in NATURE on the subject of the “Social Relations of Science”, and also a resolution forwarded from an informal meeting of those specially interested in the question, in which the Association was asked to establish within its own organization a special Department which would hold meetings, not necessarily confined to the annual meetings of the Association, to consider and discuss the social and international relations of science. The Council resolved to support this proposal, and appointed a committee to formulate a scheme giving effect to it, for presentation to the General Committee (with which the decision as to action will lie) at the forthcoming Cambridge meeting.
