Miini of Mimor
From the London Spectator
Plato asserted with truth that the in
vention of the art of writing had produced
one evil effect it had immensely weak
ened human memory What he would have
said today at the sight of a file of a big
daily or a pocket memorandum we may
easily guess Probabl never was Individ
ual memory weaker than now We
all note down our engagements and we
know that there so many
dias and works of reference that we need
not trouble to keep any fact In our mem
ory Tho well informed man today is he
who knows where to go for his authori
ties not he vho has all the knowledge at
first hand The volume of knowledge
cspcclall In natural science is so enor
mous that it would be impossible for any
one person to master it
Holmes In his Poet at the Breakfast
Table In his humorous portraal of the
Scaribee has provided an object lesson
in the ultra specialism of our time Man
kind at large ma be mastr of the wide
field of human knowledge but mankind as
an individual can never explore more than
a corner of this huge domain In this
sense Tennyson wns right when he said
that the individual withers and tho world
is more and more Two facts are then
obvious Tirst Ilito was right when he
said that human invention had weakened
the memory and secondly the sphere of
modern knowledge could not have been
conquered and held by man without such
artificial contrivance
