Summary
"Philosophical ideas, as the history of philosophy shows, may have a double significance. They may attempt to propound, to discuss, or to solve certain problems; and they may represent symptoms of certain tendencies of the intellectual life of man. Between these two phases of philosophy a constant interaction takes place; for the fact that a problem is propounded and treated in a certain way, may be considered as a symptom of a peculiar intellectual movement; and, on the other hand, the sting of problems excites intellectual movements which otherwise would not arise. In my "History of modern philosophy" I have tried to show, in a purely historical way, that there are four chief problems, namely: I. The problem of the nature of consciousness (the psychological problem); II. The problem of the validity of knowledge (the logical problem); III. The problem of the nature of being (the cosmological problem); and IV. The problem of value (the moral and religious problem). In this treatise my task is to point out the inner connection between these problems. At bottom, they are one and the same problem, appearing in different forms and applications"--Introduction.
