Excerpt from Logic and Imagination in the Perception of Truth, Vol. 1: The Nature of Pure Activity in Two Series
This is an attempt to review some scientific and philosophic principles within the ordinary modes of research and the categories of the plain man's way of thinking. There has been a humble attempt at analyzing the forms of knowledge and belief, but this does not claim more than to have touched upon that vast realm of the Reason that makes possible the universal synthesizing activity of the Mind's Life in the World of Experience.
If this little book shall strengthen the belief in immortality, revive - the - faith of the Eternal Pres ence, suggest some good and fruitful ways of actualizing the teleological principle in life, restore the freshness of a withered hope, show the way in any degree to the establishment of a permanent rational faith, inspire some aspiring life with a little good-will and happiness of social relations in the Citadel of Peace, and encourage the strongly brave Spirit of invincible conquest under the com mission of Truth to some worthy achievement in the realm of science, literature, or art - the author shall deem it a recompense.
