Excerpt from Science and Learning in France: With a Survey of Opportunities for American Students in French Universities
Our purpose in this volume is, primarily, to put before the American public the contributions of France in all fields of scientific knowledge, and to show her status in the forefront of the world's progress; and, in addition, to furnish to American university students all information bearing on graduate work in France.
Each chapter sets forth briefly, for a particular field:
1. The record of French scholarship during the past century; the notable achievements; the eminent leaders; the special lines of development; in general, the share of France in the world's progress;
2. The courses of instruction given, now or recently, at the universities of France, particularly at the University of Paris; the names of the most important scholars, with mention of their principal contributions and of the special fields of research over which they preside;
3. The facilities available for study and research, including the libraries, laboratories, archives, and museums, the auxiliary institutes, special schools, and learned societies and committees.
There is also:
An Introduction, describing the general intellectual spirit of France and Paris, and the interest and attractions that capital and country offer to the foreign scholar; and
An Appendix, describing the organization of French universities, the standards of preparation expected of the student, the system of degrees, the customs as to residence and attendance, the regulations as to fees and the like; and other facts useful to the visiting student.
