    In his talk last week Dr. Kennedy outlined how he organized research and in the course of his address stated that he was concentrating on the nuts and bolts of the operation rather than on the more exciting intellectual matters of objectivity, causality, creativity, inspiration, induction and deduction. It is my function to talk about the latter topics but in the time at my disposal I can cover very little of this ground. I propose therefore to confine my remarks to a discussion of research methodology or to what is known as "the theory of inquiry". As an introduction to this subject I will speak briefly about deduction and induction and conclude by giving an example of the application of these ideas in a practical situation.
