of historical research and scientific experiment, a broader and higher state of self-consciousness was attained.

It asserts the importance of the life-...

It also makes some first steps towards distinguishing relatively timeless software engineering principles that are risky not to repeat, and conditions of change under which aging practices will become increasingly risky to repeat.
