This realisation of the importance of correlation is the outcome of many things. One is the tendency of this age to think in parts rather I' than in wholes, in elements rather than in grouped elements. In the olden times, both material things and human beings were invariably thought of as entities, wholes; but with closer thinking, and the awakening of the scientific spirit of analysis, measurement, standardisation and synthesis, has come the realisation that the fact that the thing or persons as a whole is often far less important than the fact that the thing or person is a group, or community, or combination of parts.
