The first number of the next volume will be published in January, 1915, and will contain a new and unexpected feature. In the present European war, Scientia, true to iU scientific and international character, has decided to emerge from its ' ivory tower of abstract synthesis' and to invite 'the most eminent philosophers, historians, socialogists, economists and jurists,' to treat thoroughly the question of the war and its causes. These authorities have been chosen from both of the opposing camps and also from neutral countries, and have either already sent their studies to Scientia or will soon do so. The object of this inquiry is to conduct an objective and calm investigation into the causes ani sociological factors of the war; and not only will this inquiry be of great scientifio interest, but it will also be of supreme and vital practical importance; for from this analysis we shall be able to conclude if, and in what way, the present war can, for the good of humanity and civilisation, preserve us for ever from other wars. Thus with the next volume Scientia will-for the present at least-appear every month instead of every two months, and, as usual, there will be a supplement containing French translations of the English, German, and Italian articles.
