JOHN LOMAS
who asked me to write itPreface
I am indebted for many valuable criticisms to Professor C. D.
Broad and Dr C. P. Snow, each of whom read my srcinal
manuscript. I have incorporated the substance of nearly all of
their suggestions in my text, and have so removed a good many
crudities and obscurities.
In one case, I have dealt with them differently. My §28 is
based on a short article which I contributed toEureka (the journal
of the Cambridge Archimedean Society) early in the year, and I
found it impossible to remodel what I had written so recently and
with so much care. Also, if I had tried to meet such important
criticisms seriously, I should have had to expand this section so
much as to destroy the whole balance of my essay. I have
therefore left it unaltered, but have added a short statement of the
chief points made by my critics in a note at the end.
