Transcript 28 Russia's Gift to the World J II. So far we have been speaking of Russian art and letters, and in doing so it has been kept in view that these are Russian in the fullest sense; that is, that they are not only produced by writers and artists who happened to be Russians, but represent the character and the creative instinct of a nation. When we turn from the arts to the sciences this does not hold good quite so fully. For science is a matter more largely of pure intellect, and not so much of temperament or character. It is, in its nature, less local or national than art. But in the application of science, and in the method of handling the same material, national genius comes out; and there are nations, too, which seem to have a special capacity for certain sciences ; thus the French have what may be almost called a national genius for mathematics. Also science, at its highest, is a matter not merely of intellect, but of imaginative power. Thus while science is in some sense international, yet the greatness of any country in science can be measured, partly by the number of great scientists which it has produced, partly by the energy which it puts into the pursuit of knowledge, and partly by its success in organising the co-operation of research and in diffusing intellectual interest widely. One source of greatness in any nation is its belief m knowledge ; one claim to distinction is the amount of knowledge it has contributed to the common stock ; one title of honour for it is the roll of its great scientific names. Newton and Darwin are part of the glory of England ; Humboldt and Virchow of Germany ; Laplace, Lavoisier, Pasteur, of France. Russia also has its organised study of science, its co-operative energy in the pursuit of scientific truth, and its great scientific names, some of them in the front rank of the whole world.
