About this title


Excerpt from Mars and Its Canals

To set forth science in a popular, that is, in a generally understandable, form is as obligatory as to present it in a more technical manner. If men are to benefit by it, it must be expressed to their com prehension. To do this should be feasible for him who is master of his subject and is both the best test of, and the best training to, that post. Espe cially vital is it that the exposition should be done at first hand; for to describe what a man has him self discovered comes as near as possible to making a reader the co-discoverer of it. Not only are thus escaped the mistaken glosses of second-hand knowl edge, but an aroma of actuality, which cannot be filtered through another mind without sensible evap oration, clings to the account of the pioneer. Nor is it so hard to make any well-grasped matter com prehensible to a man of good general intelligence as is commonly supposed. The whole object of science is to synthesize, and so simplify; and did we but know the uttermost of a subject we could make it singularly clear. Meanwhile technical phraseology.
