PREFATORY NOTE

The Essays which follow represent an attempt at

intellectual cooperation. No effort has been made,

however, to attain unanimity of belief nor to proffer a

platform of " planks "

on which there is agreement. The

consensus represented lies primarily in outlook, in con-

viction of what is most likely to be fruitful in method

of approach. As the title page suggests, the volume

presents a unity in attitude rather than a uniformity

in results. Consequently each writer is definitively

responsible only for his own essay. The reader will

note that the Essays endeavor to embody the common

attitude in application to specific fields of inquiry

which have been historically associated with philosophy

rather than as a thing by itself. Beginning with philos-

ophy itself, subsequent contributions discuss its appli-

cation to logic, to mathematics, to physical science, to

psychology, to ethics, to economics, and then again to

philosophy itself in conjunction with esthetics and re-

ligion. The reader will probably find that the signifi-

cant points of agreement have to do with the ideas of the

genuineness of the future, of intelligence as the organ

for determining the quality of that future so far as it

can come within human control, and of a courageously

inventive individual as the bearer of a creatively em-

ployed mind. While all the essays are new in the form

in which they are now published, various contributors
