Intrinsic factors derive from the internal logic and force of the scientific situation. Thus, a scientist is often motivated by some essentially aesthetic feeling that drives him to seek more order. Or, perhaps more typically, the scientist may not necessarily be very curious about the answer that his 27 2* ALVIN M. WEINBERG activity will reveal, but is motivated simply by the belief that he can get an answer. Science is opportunistic; it exploits salients where it finds them, and, like a meandering river, it tends, as von Neumann said, to follow the path of least resistance.
