Abstract

Argues that the development of scientific thought is related to human and physical geographical conditions. In early agricultural societies, centralized bureaucracies emerged to meet the need for information about soil, climate, hydrology and topography that relate to water distribution. Sees the community's need to tie learning to social improvement as the motor force of scientific progress. - (DWG)
