"The Third Institute on the Administration of Scientific Research and Development, sponsored by The American University, the National Research Council, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, was primarily concerned with problems posed by team research. Like so many things that acquire sudden prominence, team research may currently be glorified beyond its merits, and there are those who lack the historical perspective to recognize its antiquity, as well as those who exaggerate its importance to the point of claiming that the "uncommitted" research of the individual worker is as much an anachronism as the horse is in the realm of transportation, and that both will soon be appropriate museum pieces. Although the participants in the Institute devoted themselves enthusiastically and single-mindedly to the subject of team research, this volume is evidence that they did not lose their sense of perspective. Just as the geologist, the naturalist, or the engineer knows that the horse is the only means of locomotion along a mountain trail, so in every specialized field of science the patient labor--whether inspired or plodding--of the highly trained expert is still indispensable as a means of adding to the factual base upon which the foundation of effective teamwork is laid"--Foreword.
