In addition to leaving a legacy of unheard of clinical learn, Cajal sought to teach the beginner scientist approximately how technological know-how used to be performed and the way he proposal it's going to be performed. This lately rediscovered vintage, first released in 1897, is an anecdotal consultant for the at a loss for words new investigator in addition to a clean source for the outdated pro.Cajal was once a pragmatist, conscious of the pitfalls of being too idealistic -- and he had a feeling of humor, fairly obvious in his diagnoses of a variety of stereotypes of eccentric scientists.

If our professions do not allow us to devote more than two hours a day to a subject, do not abandon the work on the pretext that we need four or six. ” The harm in certain things that are too distracting lies not so much in the time they steal from us as in the enervation they bring to the creative tension of the mind, and in the loss they cause to that quality of tone that nerve cells acquire when adapted to a particular subject. Of course we don’t recommend the elimination of all distractions.
This is so well known that examples are hardly necessary. Nevertheless, I would like to cite two recent developments that are very signiªcant. One is the great industry involved in the manufacture of precision lenses (for micrography, photography, and astronomy). 5 The other example is the manufacture of therapeutic serums that was born in Berlin and perfected in Paris. It is both natural and legitimate that Behring and Roux, who established the scientiªc principles upon which serum therapy is based, exercise a controlling hand.
I believe that excessive fondness for tradition, along with obstinate determination to maintain scientiªc formulations of the past, reºect either indomitable mental laziness or a blanket to cover mistakes. Hapless is he who remains silent and absorbed in a book. Extreme admiration drains the personality and clouds understanding, which comes to accept hypothesis for proof and shadow for obvious truth. I am sure that on ªrst reading, not everyone is able to stumble across the gaps and ºaws of an inspired book.
