Abstract
The variation in detail, for example, from a standard type would have no meaning unless we were able to postulate the standard type in the first place. Unless we perceive the broad generalisations inherent of every great productive period we lose the very basis of our researches - our studies become fragmentary, unrelated; our conclusions incomplete and valueless."
