Excerpt from The Tree in the Midst: A Contribution to the Study of Freedom

(l) Harmony, not discord, is the law of the universe. The law of Heraclitus, that Being stands only in virtue of Becoming, is the keystone of the argument; the purport of which is (4) the emancipation of man, which, with its questions of Why and Wherefore have bred philosophy since men began to think. The two views of evolution, chance and purpose. (5) The knowledge of to-day and the wisdom of all time contrasted. (6) With all its change of system one idea has ever prevailed with philosopher and poet, that man is a free agent. This idea, the basis of our inquiry and the master-key to all its intricacies, is teleology. (9) The necessity of defining knowledge and wisdom, science and philosophy. Philosophy stands between science and art. Knowledge is utilitarian, wisdom ethical. (10) Facts and laws of science will frequently be given as essential to that understanding of law, physical, vital, and ethical, which is not the privilege of the technically scientific alone.
