Excerpt from Lectures on the Method of Science
At previous meetings it had been the practice to offer, in the section of Natural Science, a course of lectures in some special branch of scientific study. When the arrangements for the meeting of 1905 were under dis cussion, a suggestion was made to the Delegates by Mr. A. W. Brown - formerly Exhibitioner of Christ Church, and now Principal of the University Extension College at Stafford - to the effect that a different plan should be pursued this year. Instead of a course upon some particular branch of scientific investigation, it was suggested that a course should be given illustrating the forms taken by scientific method in various departments of research. The suggestion was approved by the Delegates, and a scheme of Lectures was drawn up. The course as delivered in Oxford was received with great satisfaction, and it appeared to the Delegates that it might be of value to publish some of the Lectures in the hope that their high interest, both in themselves and in their mutual connexion, would justify their presentation to a wider public.
