Excerpt from The Level of Social Motion: An Inquiry Into the Future Conditions of Human Society

A comparison of ancient and modern thought will show us how thorough has been this reversal in man's ways of thinking. All of the earliest written records of human life disclose the human intellect attempting to map out the entire scheme of universal creation. Wise men seldom make similar efforts now. Their attention has been turned from the universe, as a whole, to the nature of its smallest particular parts. Instead of trying to explain how the illimitable total ity of things sprang into being, they are trying to discover the remote process of life in the remote inte rior of the microscopic cell.

In the development of this inversion of intellect many old beliefs have been annihilated and many ancient errors removed; and chief among the changes thus brought about are those which concern the his tory of man himself and of the nations of which that history is the record.
