    Author's Comments:
    This is the text of a lecture that I gave at the Institut d'Élie Cartan in Nancy, France in June 1998 as part of their Journées Élie Cartan.

    The theme is that Cartan's understanding of the role of duality in the homogeneous spaces of the rank 2 Lie groups had a profound effect on his development of the method of equivalence, connections, and path geometry.
