Scientific men cannot stand aside and ignore the vast political and social experiments being conducted during the present period of accelerated social change. It is not necessary or even desirable, however, that professional scientific men abandon their laboratories and attempt to deal with executive problems; but it is necessary that they expound insistently the nature of scientific thought and study its application to social and political problems. Engineers and scientists are urged to deal with problems of social reconstruction as they deal with other problems, pinning their faith on those methods of reasoning that have proved so successful in analyzing all types of natural phenomena.
