H. G. Wells on Quantitative Thinking

April 11, 2008  |  Quotes

The time may not be very remote when it will be understood that for complete initiation as an efficient citizen of one of the new great complex world wide states that are now developing, it is as necessary to be able to compute, to think in averages and maxima and minima, as it is now to be able to read and write.

H.G. Wells, Mankind in the Making, 1904

[Thanks, Jan]
