Ideas, Problems, and Methods of Inquiry

by Benjamin S. Bloom 1958

The writer is planning a trip to a foreign country. He has never been there before and knows very little about the country, the people, or the patterns of life and activity in various parts of this strange land. Since time is short, he finds himself almost desperately talking to everyone who has been there and reading everything he can get hold of which seems relevant to it in any way. Why this frantic preparation? What is to be gained by this attempt to get a taste of the country in advance of the actual experience? These are a few of the questions that occur to the writer whenever he pauses in his attempt to devour the material available.
