This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1907. Excerpt: ... Monism." The works which express Haeckel's views are the "Riddle of the Universe," and the " Wonders of Life," and a shorter treatise called "Monism." His attitude that mind is but a function of the brain, that is, nothing else than matter in motion, seems sufficiently refuted by himself every time he uses the pronoun " I." The views of various men of science from Sir Oliver Lodge to Father Waggett and Mr. Wilfrid Ward can be learned from the " Ideals of Science and Faith," edited by Mr. J. E. Hands. In this connection should be read so much of Mr. Herbert Spencer's "First Principles" as deals with the Unknowable, and with it Bishop Pearson on Credibility and Testimony in the beginning of his treatise on the Creed, and Mr. Romanes' "Thoughts on Religion." Father Waggett's "Science and Religion" is a good introduction to apologetic study, and it provides an extensive bibliography. In the sphere of Eschatology, besides the "Eternal Hope." there is Oxenham's "Catholic Eschatology," and Dr. Pusey's answer to the "Eternal Hope," in which will be found many references to other works. Dante's "Divina Commedia" should not be forgotten, and those who do not care to read St. Thomas on Beatitude in the original, will find his doctrine well presented in Elmendorf's " Elements of Moral Theology." This closes my list of books, except that a list of those of which I could ascertain the publisher's name and the price is given below, the authors' names being in alphabetical order. I would add to such as are in difficulties the advice, " Do the work and thou shalt know of the doctrine." Keep in contact with the Person of Christ through the exercises of religion and the doing of His will first, and then with patience knowledge of the doctrine will follow. Chesterton, G. K. ...
