University of Pennsylvania : Its History, Influence, Equipment and Characteristics; With Biographical Sketches and Portraits of Founders, Benefactors, Officers and Alumni (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from University of Pennsylvania: Its History, Influence, Equipment and Characteristics; With Biographical Sketches and Portraits of Founders, Benefactors, Officers and Alumni In fact we might warrantably say that in these modern days Science, Philosophy and Art have all enlarged their content and their scope. Geology, Geography, Meteorology, Astro nomy, have each revealed new aspects of the world; Biology, new reaches of life; Chemistry and Molecular Physics have opened to us glimpses of wondrous modes of action which we scarcely dignify by calling them laws, inasmuch as they seem like generative powers; the prob lems of Psychology are investigated on new lines, and even the traditions of history, in its monuments, relics and languages, are tried by new tests and lead to new grounds of conclusion.
