General Interest Article
At first I thought that for this occasion I would prepare a paper on one of the important lines of recent scientific discussion. After the kind acceptance by Professor Chamberlin of our invitation to address us this evening I gave up all intention of preparing a paper, thinking that the address which we are about to hear would render the presentation of a related subject by me undesirable; but when I found that the omission of a paper styled the "Presidential Address" would be considered an unacceptable "innovation , " I immediately decided to present briefly a pedagogical question which has been forced upon my attention again and again, and I doubt not has been the occasion of much thought on the part of every teacher present; a question that demands the thoughtful consideration of every scientist engaged in educational work. The question is this: what sciences should be required for a general education?
