Excerpt

An explanation, if not an apology, is perhaps due to the reader for offering him a book which discusses philosophy as well as art. My only excuse is that the field invites trespassers. So little has been done, at least in English, to discover the theory of realism in art, and its connexion--if it has any--with realism in thinking, that sooner or later some one was bound to raise the question whether the two things have not something more in common than their name. That is the origin of the book, though the chapters on art and those on philosophy can be read independently of each other. Chapters II.-VII. deal with art, Chapters VIII. and IX. with philosophy, while the first and last chapters may be called 'mixed.' The introductory chapter sketches some of the points which are discussed later, and some of the stages which have led up to the modern point of view.
