Science of Folklore 1930
1930. Folklore is a historical science, having its own methods of research and admitting of the same system of checks and verifications as any other. With its sister sciences it may combine to make up the cycle of our knowledge of man's past life. From this follows that it may assume the rank of an ancillary science to any or all of them, and it has done so repeatedly, notably to the various philogies, history, ethnography, and the history of religion. The author would therefore be particularly happy if his book could prove useful to fellow workers in such related fields, anxious to acquaint themselves with the fundamental facts and working methods of folklore.
