It is certainly true that the scientist’s fame is not as great as the playwright or artist’s glamour and popularity. People live in a world of sentiment, and it is asking too much of them to provide warmth and support for the heroes of reason. Nevertheless, scholars do have their public. It consists of the intellectual aristocracy that dwells in every country, speaks every language, and reaches the most distant of future generations. These admirable men of science do not, of course, applaud or forget themselves in torrents of emotion.

Nevertheless, if these humble fungi—whose mission is to return to the general circulation of matter those substances incorporated by the higher plants and animals—were to disappear, humans could not inhabit the planet. The far-reaching importance of attention to detail in technical methodology is perhaps demonstrated more clearly in biology than in any other sphere. To cite but one example, recall that Koch, the great German bacteriologist, thought of adding a little alkali to a basic aniline dye, and this allowed him to stain and thus discover the tubercle bacillus— revealing the etiology of a disease that had until then remained uncontrolled by the wisdom of the most illustrious pathologists.
