Twentieth Century Philosophy: Living Schools of Thought

Excerpt

In presenting this volume to the student of philosophy I am fully aware of the sheer impossibility of doing justice to the proper presentation of all living schools and movements in philosophy today. I am most grateful to the many thinkers and scholars who have directly contributed to this symposium or permitted their ideas and statements to be represented here.

It is rather difficult to bring together under one cover thinkers and thoughts of such divergent principles, attitudes, and temper. In general, we must admit, philosophers can not pride themselves on being too indulgent with the opinions of those adhering to different schools.

Perhaps because of this we have taken this step of having the representatives of various schools and movements state their case, leaving it to the student to draw his conclusions and find or rectify his position. Perhaps some day we may have cumulative philosophy as we have cumulative sciences. Perhaps. In the meantime it behooves the sincere friends of wisdom to go about their tasks and teachings with the tolerance which is the grace of true scholarship.
