Abstract

To most people to-day the word science suggests, JL first of all, the marvellous modern applications of science to human use. Such inventions, yearly increasing in numbers and in scope, have enriched human life not only on its material side, but also indirectly, in aesthetic, intellectual and spiritual aspects. By quickening every sort of intercommunication they have put the most widely separated products of human thought and creativeness at the disposal of everyone. By 'annihilating time and space', as the vivid phrase goes, they have drawn the peoples of the world together.
