The Revolt against Mechanism

Excerpt

The lectures comprised in this little volume were delivered by me under the auspices of the Hibbert Trust in October and November 1933 at the following places: the Literary and Philosophical Institute, Newcastle-on-Tyne; the Midland Institute, Birmingham; the University, Bristol; the University College of the South West, Exeter. My warm thanks are due to the Hibbert Trust for giving me the opportunity of publicly developing the theme of the lectures, which is, simply, that the spiritual progress of humanity is on creative lines, and that mechanism is a friend or an enemy to religion according to the use that is made of it. I have also to thank the Rev. W. H. Drummond, D.D., the Secretary to the Hibbert Trust, and the local organizers in the four cities named for the admirable arrangements made for the delivery of the lectures.

In preparing the lectures for the Press I have made some rearrangements of the matter, appropriate to the difference between the spoken and the written word, but without altering the substance. It is hoped that the division into sections will help the reader in following the sequence of ideas.
