For those in industrial undertakings concerned with the social and cultural importance of consumer goods, justice to material and purpose cannot be determinants, they can be no more than conditions. Justice to materials is done by searching investigation and experiment, to get acquainted with their characteristics and possible uses. Justice to purpose can only then be described as done when it has been so done that the purpose is no longer conspicuous.
