The Need of Quantitative Methods in Applied Geology

Excerpt from The Need of Quantitative Methods in Applied Geology Geology, like the other sciences, can be of service only to the degree that its methods are exact. In other words, the useful ness of the science is measured by the precision of its technique. The science of geology had its origin in the union of the speculations of philosophy with the small body of facts regard ing rocks, ores, and other minerals accumulated in the course of the winning of the metals and the useful minerals a union of the a priori with the empirical. These two methods of attack have come down to us from the time that man began to make history, and, indeed, both are still extant, although happily no longer of equal authority. According to the Scrip tures, while Tubal Cain was beating out useful implements of brass, cosmic philosophers were expounding how the land was separated from the great deep and how the mountains were brought forth.
