Abstract

We live in a period that sees wonderful attainments in science and art, so that in theory and practice many think the summum bonum has been reached. It is pre-eminently the age of science and the application of scientific methods to all phases of human activity. The forces of nature have been made subject to the will of man. The relations of man to his surroundings have been carefully considered. The province of human intellect has been made the ground of scientific investigations. We now see scientific methods foremost and uppermost, and all human thought is more or less permeated and even molded by the new ways of looking at the facts of our experience and reason. But with all our enlightenment no other age has equaled ours in the prevalence of unblushing fraud and boasting duplicity.
