(All rights reserved) PREFACE

The present work consists of discussions, fortified by quotations and summarized in propositions, bearing on the themes of Professionalism and Originality. A third theme-Revelation-has been omitted for the present'; the lines of its treatment appear in the closing chapter.

Constructive suggestions have been relegated to an Appendix. They vary greatly in value and immediate practicability; with those that concern education I feel most at home, and one phase of that subjectthe promotion of teachers—was, in fact, the startingpoint of my studies in Professionalism and Originality.

It remains to be seen whether the book is to be condemned as a product of mere scissors and paste or praised for its thirty or more inductions. Meanwhile I will point out some possible sources of misunderstanding.

First : The division between professional and original men is drawn sharply. This sharpness is a necessity of exposition, and, as such, has crept into much modern literature 2 ; but, like most distinctions, it does not entirely correspond to the infinite variety of the facts. Professionalism and Originality, Death and Life, exist side by side in most of us; the question of im

Fesus the Rationalist. (In Preparation.)

E.g. Ethel Sidgwick's Promise, Chekoff's Seagull, Ibsen's Enemy of the People and Hedda Gabler.
