An inquiry into factors that foster or hinder significant research in colleges and universities. It is maintained (1) that the way to train an individual to be creative in the theoretical domain is to keep the image of the real world constantly in front of him and simultaneously teach him how to abstract ideas and problems from observed phenomena; and (2) that new ideas and new results can be produced by directing graduate students of ordinary ability and intelligence into new areas containing sound problems.
