Excerpt from Contributions to the Biology of the Danish Culicidæ

In the time from 1910 - 1920 a series of shorter papers, dealing with the biology of the European species, appeared, and the biological facts, mentioned by the American authors, were generally corroborated by the European ones. In my opinion this literature very often by no means comes up to the standard which should be exacted for scientific work.

After brief reflection I resolved that I would carry to an end my own studies in spite of the whole American and European literature, and moreover that during the study I would not take the slightest notice of it. My leading scientific views were the following.

From a purely scientific point of view, I have always regarded the question, who first made a biological observation as a matter of sublime indifference. It must never be forgotten, that even with regard to biological observations which can only rarely be committed to paper with the same convincing exactness as an anatomical structure, the exact apprehension of a given fact can only be acquired through repeated observation. It is further of the greatest significance that the biological observations are tested by different scientists and in different latitudes; only in that way can our suppositions and hypotheses be registered among real scientific facts. It must further be remembered that the study of Nature must always begin with the slightest possible literary ballast. He who has first crammed his head with all that has been written upon a subject, will at the moment of observa tion, when standing face to face with Nature, soon understand that his whole learning is only felt as a burden and restricts his power of observation. I for my own part have always been of the opinion that it is exactly the smallest equipment of human knowledge which gives the greatest peace in my studies, creates the scientific sovereignty over observations and thoughts and as far as possible moves the milestones of time nearer to the borders of eternity.
