Klappentext

Excerpt from Common-Sense Theology A theory which is consistently worked out on these lines is, comparatively speaking, a new one, and critics who persist in the habit of addressing the Life Force as an old and rather boring acquaintance, because in some form or other they have met it in the works of popular authors ever since they began to read, must remember that the antiquity of philo sophical theories normally exceeds that of their critics, and that it is possible for the Life Force to be a comparative newcomer on the speculative stage, even though a critic has met it before. We need, then, be disturbed neither by the condescension of the critics, nor by the implied charge of stale ness. It is only natural that men should condescend to 3 Force that possesses neither the dignity of God nor the inevitableness of Fate: it is only natural that they should fail to be impressed by the merits of a theory to which they have grown accustomed for a truth has only 'to be repeated sufficiently often to cease to appear true. A word may be added on the form in which the theory is presented. The dialogue form practised Often since Plato, has been practised rarely with success, and is accordingly unpopular to-day. The reason is not far to seek. Philosophers have endeavoured to invest their dialogue with dramatic qualities they have used it as a vehicle for the expression of their wit, and they have sought to make their personages living characters of esh and blood. But philosophers are not normally endowed with the gift of repartee, nor are they as a rule pre-eminent for the exuberance of creative imagination, a circumstance not to be wondered at, seeing that, if philo sophers were really gifted with these talents, they would devote them to the more lucrative and pleasing task of pro ducing fiction proper in the form of plays and novels, instead of spending their time in ploughing the thankless and wearisome sands of metaphysical speculation.
