In Search of Objectives: An\ud Intellectual Autobiography

By David V. Canter


Any account of a natural process must be a simplification. The written word can\ud only sketch the variety that is integral to growth and change. This is true whether\ud it is a garden that is being described or a human career. But for a career there is a\ud further distortion. The sequence of activities that intertwine to make a period in a\ud person's life when written as a history has far more shape and direction to it than\ud it ever has at the time, when it is being experienced
