He “invented” his commission and made it universal, ever willing to finance his own active and creative role. As a result, his models have all the characteristics of laboratory experiments: and in no case can a laboratory model be translated tout court into reality. But that is not all. In this case, the universal applicability of the hypothesis clashed with the backward structures that it was supposed to stimulate.
