The Scholar’s Workshop and Tools (1970, 1976, 1981)
Just as we may picture an ideal scientist, we may set forth qualities ideal in one who is to trace the development of science. I do not use the terms “history of science”, “physics”, or “mathematics”, since these now denote established professions, while a great scholar, although he must stand on the same ground as his fellows, is taller and sees above their heads.
