Excerpt

The following address aims to suggest and to sketch a new way of thinking about old things of universal interest. The major emphasis falls upon the great function of Idealization regarded in the light of what mathematicians call the method or the process of Limits. The central thesis is that this process in the domain of reason or of rational thought indicates the reality and, in part, the nature of a domain beyond, a realm superrational, and that this realm is the ultimate and permanent ground and source of the religious emotions.
