Transcripts & Translations


[Inserted text in margin: Scientific Method, its importance (Wieman)] The very center of Wieman's [Inserted text: used] thought is "scientific method." As Van Dusen puts it, "Scientific Method" is more than a thread running through all Professor Wieman's writings; it is not too much to say that it is the central pivot around which everything else must revolve and in relation to which it must take its reference and obtain its validity." Christian Century, 48(1931),711.
