If one looks about him in the scientific world for the most striking
characteristic of our times, he will find it, perhaps, in the systematic organization
of investigative work. There has never before been a time when original research
has been so carefully planned or so consciously directed as now. The world
is tremendously impressed with the results of science attained during the
last two centuries, but it would not be surprising, with the immense system
of inquiry now in vogue, if during the twentieth century discoveries were
made which would exceed in number and eclipse in grandeur those of all the
centuries which have preceded.
