The Philosophy of Science during the first quarter of the twentieth century.

The first quarter of the 20th century was a very important period for philosophy of science and for science consequently.

Having published his first volume of "The Introduction to the history of science" in 1927 it is important to shed some light on the state of science philosophy of that period if we want to determine if Sarton had some foresighted ideas about how the practice of science should evolve.  And if any, if they were adopted by other great philosophers or just discovered by them independently.
