- - t IN TRANSITION LECTURES ON THE HARRIS FOUNDATION, 1924 By HERBERT KRAUS Professor of International and Public Law and Political Science at the University of Konigsberg y if propose Hen je nt suppos rien, f expos. THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO PRESS CHICAGO ILLINOIS TO MY WIFE PREFACE The following essays, originally given as lectures in the period between June 24 and July 1 8, 1924, at the University of Chicago on the Norman Wait Harris Memorial Foundation, are given to the public at the request of the Com mittee of the Foundation in the sincere hope that they may contribute their small part toward the lofty purpose which the letter of gift of the Harris Foundation describes with the words .... The promotion of a better understanding on the part of American citizens of the other peoples of the world, thus establishing a basis for improved international relations and a more enlightened world-order. The aims shall always be to give accurate information, not to propagate opinion. To my great regret the fact that I am traveling and away from my library has rendered it impos sible for me to add references to the extensive literature on which my discussions are based, and by which they are supported, as I would wish to do. I was also unable to compile the Index, for which I am obliged to the University Press. Nor was it pos sible for me to consider in these lectures any event or fact which occurred after they were written. My lectures are printed in the form in which they were given. I have added only a few state PREFACE ments originally a part of them, which I was obliged to omit owing to lack of time. Before these lines leave my desk I must express my warm appreciation to all those whohave given me such efficient assistance both in Germany and America, including the secretariat of the League of Nations in Geneva the Deutsche Liga fur Volkerbund German League of Nations Union, Berlin Dr. Wilhelm Winkler, president of the Institute for Statistics of National Minorities at the University of Vienna the Deutsche Industrie-und Handelstag, Berlin Dr. Eugen Fischer, secretary and expert in the Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry of the German Reichstag Professor Laun, Hamburg Professor Stier-Somlo, Cologne, and last but not least Professor Quincy Wright, of the University of Chicago, and Francis Thayer Hobson, of Yale University, while I ask those I have not mentioned to pardon my not naming them individually, as they are so many. These essays are dedicated to my wife, who translated the lectures with me, and who by countless suggestions helped me indefatigably in the accomplishment of this work.

SEPARATISM IN GERMANY 189 INDEX 227 POLITICAL CONDITIONS AND TENDENCIES IN GERMANY POLITICAL CONDITIONS AND TENDENCIES IN GERMANY One of the greatest honors which can be paid a scholar is to be requested by a university of a foreign country to lecture on the results of his research and study, and the invitation to lecture here on the Harris Memorial Foundation, extended to me as a representative of German scholarship, seems to me a most promising sign that the lamentable wall which the war reared between thedifferent provinces of science is beginning happily to be leveled. The aim of scholarship and science is universal. It is the truth in the largest sense of the word. There is no English, French or German truth, but only one truth as such. The great scholars and the great discoveries belong to the whole world. If the object of science is universal, it is the heritage of mankind, and the various national groups, down to that tiniest germinal cell, the individual scholar, dedicated to the investigation of truth, are but various departments of the world
