This looks like an old classic, one that many of you will have seen, but 
not me.


I plan to make all my students read it just as soon as someone employs 
me to do so. This is because it upholds two great principles: the 
primacy of the scientific method; and the importance of not taking 
yourself too seriously (both crucial to academic progress I think).
