    The ground and goal of human life (1919) by Charles Gray Shaw

    The ground and goal of human life (1919) by Charles Gray Shaw The work contained in the following pages expresses, as it were, a treaty of peace between the forces of Individualism here and those of scientific-social thought there. To one who has followed the parallel histories of egoism militant on the one side and naturalism triumphant on the other, the present situation appears full of promise for a future understanding between man and the things and persons around him. For the comprehension of this situation, one can do no better than to conduct an analytical review of the way in which the effort toward selfhood has expressed itself; just…

    An introduction to mythology (1921) by Lewis Spence PDF book

    An introduction to mythology by Lewis Spence PDF book This volume is an outline of the principles of mythology, chiefly with reference to its more modern developments. Hand in hand with the sister sciences of folklore and comparative religion, it has advanced so rapidly within the last twenty years and altered so greatly from its ancient aspect that it seems an entirely new science. Thirty years ago, if a student of myth had been asked who Janus was, he would probably have replied: ” A Roman god of origins.” To-day he might see in his development of the ‘ kirn-baby.’ So does the study of collected facts and analogies enable…

    Handbook for literary and debating societies PDF book by Laurence M Gibson

    Handbook for literary and debating societies, including 83 examples of questions for debate, with summarized arguments on both sides Of course, no attempt has been made to provide a complete bibliography on each subject for debate, nor have books been selected for their literary merit. The choice has fallen on those works which best provide the debater with compact information on the particular subject required, and preference has been given to those which are short, clear, and easily obtained. Pamphlets, although on many subjects of great value to the debater, are rarely quoted, because they are always ephemeral and rarely reprinted; on all subjects of a propaganda nature they can…

    Phases of Dickens; the man, his message, and his mission by John Cuming Walters

    Phases of Dickens; the man, his message, and his mission by John Cuming Walters  (1912) PDF book These chapters consist of the main addresses that I have had the privilege of reading at meetings of the Dickens Fellowship in various parts of the country. This fact explains, and will, I hope, excuse if necessary, their somewhat rhetorical character, and a few unavoidable repetitions where the subjects overlap. In preparing the papers I had in view a series of illustrations of the scope and purpose of Dickens as novelist and essayist, and as a teacher with a moral gospel enforced as much in the story as in the set sermon. Of…

We, each of us, the artist and the author, respect facts. We have never, either of us, said an unkind word regarding facts. But we believe that they should not be placed before the public exactly as they were born. We want to…
