Social and International Relations of Science


    THE growing feeling among scientific workers that they have a definite part to play in the promotion of social well-being and in international affairs found expression in a discussion in NATURE of April 23. The outcome was a suggestion that the British Association should take up the matter, and the Council of the Association put forward a proposal for the establishment of a new Division for the Social and International Relations of Science. The proposal was agreed to by a meeting at Cambridge of the General Committee on August 17. We print below the memorandum prepared for the General Committee.
