What I should like to bring out by relating all these subjects in a single course is that, instead of a series of disconnected guesses in different realms, "modern thought” is an attitude and method that produces congenial and converging results in all these fields. No specialist in any of these matters would risk his reputation (as I now cheerfully do) by talking about all of them. These lectures represent, I think, the opinions of hundreds of men who, like myself, though buried, for the most part, under the details of pulpit and parish work, nevertheless find time once in a while to come to the surface and take a periscopic view of the procession of contemporary scholarly thought.
