Excerpt

These lectures were delivered at the University of North Carolina on the McNair Foundation in May, 1918. They cannot claim to be an exhaustive discussion of their theme, but they at least express an attitude of mind. It may be that they may hearten some of those who, without abating their devotion to the cause of international peace, have been forced by the course of events to see no possibility of attaining that goal until the world is delivered by war from the menace of German imperialism. At all events they are a sincere attempt to estimate two of the spiritual forces that underlie social evolution. If I have not dealt at length with the economic and geographical factors of history, it is because I believe that economic determinism fails to account for human progress and makes a sorry showing as a final explanation of the titanic struggle in which the world is engaged.
