Abstract

The last year or two of the nineteenth century and this first year of the twentieth have been prolific in literature dealing in one way or another with science topics. There have been addresses before learned and educational gatherings, articles in science journals, and in periodicals of well-nigh all kinds, much of all this writing having been produced by the masters and leaders of science; and the object of these productions has been, generally, to give a view of the present condition and importance of scientific work and knowledge, or to review recent progress either of science in general or of special departments. The condition of science at the beginning has been contrasted with that at the end of the century just past, or the greatest discoveries and most important researches have been passed in review, and the consequences that have followed have been appraised and estimated.
