The modern attitude toward the
study of science is in reality a
medieval discovery, Etiemne Gilson,
professor of medieval philosophy in
the University of Paris, said yestsr-
day, speaking in the Lydia M'It -

"It is not true to consider the
Renaissance as a denial of all that

edge has to be of the mathematical
type to be of value, Gilson ex-
plained, and Bacon showed that it
is the business of man to deter-

lier period realized a very similar
system of philosophy, Gilson said.
They were Robert, Bishop of Lin-
coln, and Roger Bacon. Robert,
Bishop of Lincoln, was in 1195, a
professor at the Oxford school,
which had been established only
a short time before when political
difficulties kept English students
from crossing into France to attend
the University of Paris. He was a
