Abstract

In the past three or four years the popular magazines have contained numerous articles on the progress of science in the nineteenth century. These papers were written for popular information and they deal with only a few great discoveries with which all men of science are familiar. It occurred to the writer that for the entertainment and information of the man of science, who is acquainted with the main facts and theories of every science as it is to-day, and who, though not acquainted with its minute details, is at least aware of its great mass of facts, its intricate theory, and ponderous and ever increasing literature, it would be more to the point to define the conditions of science as it was at the beginning of the century, and let him arrive at a conception of its progress by subtraction.
