Point of Interest
The commonwealth of learning is not at this time without master-builders, whose mighty designs, in advancing the sciences, will leave lasting monuments to the admiration of posterity . in an age that produces such masters as the great Huygenius . `tis ambition enough to be employed as an under-labourer in clearing ground a little, and removing some of the rubbish that lies in the way of knowledge.
John Locke (1632-1704), Epistle to the Reader.
