About the Book

This book aims at bringing the best philosophical thought of the time within the range of the ordinary reader. It is an undertaking to be all the more useful, as the ordinary Englishman is not a philosopher; with him, as with Dr. Johnson's friend, "cheerfulness will keep breaking in." This book, though written by a deeply read student of philosophy, will be found intelligible, and even agreeably readable. Its message is one of hope, or rather of confidence and conviction, and it is expressed in such a spirit that must leave the reader with a very friendly feeling towards the author. Contents: the scope and limits of science; matter and life; body and mind; intellect and intuition; the "is" and the "ought"; values; the nature of spirit.
