Summary
"Every one must have his philosophy of life. All up and down the intellectual scale each person no doubt has some point of view or principle of explanation--no matter how inadequate--concerning the world in which he lives, concerning himself and his relation to the world. He entertains some hypothesis or other about the form of the earth, how it is operated, where life came from, what man's place is in relation to other life, what the human mind and spirit are, what man's destiny is, what God is and where. These and many other questions come to one at least occasionally, and no matter what one's educational advantages may have been, almost every one has caught up a principle somewhere along the way which to his mind explains at least in part these facts of the world and life. The question of origins, values, and destiny can scarcely have escaped attention even if one's religious education has been but meager. The following are the four corner stones in a philosophy of life which constitutes the background of the discussions in this book: (1) I take the view that personality is the biggest fact in the universe. (2) Next, let me state my conviction that personality is fundamentally spiritual in nature. (3) The great hue and cry that has been raised in recent times concerning evolution seems to make reference to this matter desirable in a statement of presuppositions such as this. There will certainly be no one in these days to take the negative upon the proposition that the times are out of joint"--Create. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)
