Would that I could solve the methodological problems in the field of the social sciences! Even the more modest service of having advanced their solution by an essential step deserves—considering the present level of methodological understanding—to be esteemed at least as highly as any purely descriptive monograph, even one as meritorious as Brentano's own study of the trade unions of England.
