Excerpt from The Battle of the Books in Its Historical Setting

During nearly the whole Of man's career on the earth the Old and the True have been regarded as one and the same thing. Only a great revolution in his afiairs could convince him that the New is likely to be the True. This revolution has been in prog ress for three hundred years at least. It is due to the application of new knowledge to human activity, to the palpable alteration which we see going on about us Of human aims and methods, and of the relations Of men to one another. We live in the most agrantly changeful age the world has ever seen, and the current innovations seem to be but harbingers Of far greater and more bewildering novelties still ahead. Thus accommodation has be come our very particular Obligation, and in order to meet this Obligation we must cultivate a exibility of mind and mental agility and suppleness Of an alto gether different order from that of our predecessors.
