^tiidt- and *itip[wrl li> Miv TIif* Hliaui^t ihin^ is ihnl iii&l<^ad of thin 
we bai'^i probably, the gTOA<i?«t appMreni disorganisation of author- 
ity as to intellectual maiEors that ihir world h&& over ^ecn ; whrk 
the pievAJcnC attitude and creed of scicntil^c men is philoiiophk a^- 
nottiioiKm. or difihHJrf in ihrrr nwn nn'ihf*d wh^n it rnmrti 10 fimda- 
mofitnl oiactcrft. Such a t>'pical representative ol trtodem science 
as Mf. Husdey virtually laughs 10 licorn the saj^Rention o( Mr^ Fred- 
crir llaiTiiton th^it »i:Lent:e should or could become ko oigaitJKrd h§ 
to give any *upporT. ar^y atifhorilativr viay, to liJe. 

Now I do not intend to disuift* this apparent contradiction. It 
seems to 01c obTioua cnoi]|;h that the contradiction is due to the 
fjict that MJiencv lta» ^oi lai euuu>;li alutig no thai il^ iirt^aiivt^ alti- 
tude towards previous codes of lile isevfdent. while its own positive 
principle of reconstruction ia not y«t evident, But without urging 
Ilu9 vicA' upon the reader 1 wish 10 ask how and where in the prc' 
vailtng confusion loicicAl theory, as a synop&is of the mirthods and 



lypicjil lorriK of mtcUigencc, ^EatkIs. Logical theory at ortcc reflects 
uml iiiiti'^fonns ihr? c-xiMmi^ >caui^ of uiJitirrv intv^lti^cru;!] at ;iiiy 
period. It rellecu it, for logical tl:cory i* only ihe express. Ibc

iftLc up new and more adcqtictc place. 

Tl i^obviouv, then, tlut av the ptcvailiiK indinrncr in the in- 
tc^hifCEual wfitlii to-day i* science, ibo the prpvailin;^ inffiicncp in log- 
icnl theory must be the cndcuvor to account ior, to jnt^tifyj or at 
lea?!t to reckon with this scicotiJic spirit. And y«t il there 1.1 »iich

Thc cspcciiil prolilcm of [o[;ic. tx^ the theory of scientific method. 
IS the relation of fact and lliought to each other, of reality and 
ihonRhl- It is, however, diffcn-nti^ttrd from thrr mptJiphysical lhp^ry 
oj knowledge, Logic doc» not inquire into the ultimate m/aMtigoi 
liict and thought, nor into their u.'timau relntionn to one another. It 
wmply take?* them Irom the iiltiuide ul science itaeU, it^ l>u»ine»» 
b^ing> not ih^ JTisii^caiion nor TFfniaiinn of this attitude, but it« de^

certainly no leas, Chan Jt meins to the special sciences; JE it» the

which we art trying to make out iThonjitht too means to logic I 
what it meant to licicnce : method. It is che attitude and form 
which intelligence tidceTi in reference to fact— to its si[lijcct-mattCL\

The two main lorcec, which huve been :it work against the for-

To l>cgin with, then, the empirical logic virtually continues the

The iir»t of thcM! Teaaon:^ is that tlie popular anuprclicosion ol 
the "tranHcenfltntal'* inovcmt-nl is arr^^sieil nt Kant and has never 
gone on to Hcgd, Hegel, it is true, overshadowed Kani entirely 
for a conaidcrahle period. But the Hegelian rci^imc wa? partly 
pj'iolechnical rjiilirr than sciKrtilic in dioi^itict : and, pailly. mi \hi 
AS ic WHS fttienEific, it exhausted itself in ttimliiating various detailed

ties. To those who take the prevailing agnosticism not as a thing, 
but as a symptom, this agnosticism means just this : The whole set 
of external, or non-immanent entities, is now on the point of falling 
away, of dissolving. We got just so far. popularly, as holding that 
they are unknowable. In other words, they arc crowded lo the ex- 
treme verge. One push more, and off they go. The popular con- 
sciousness will hold not only that they are unknowable, but that 
they are not. 

What then ? Science freed from its fear of an external and 
dogmatic metaphysic, will iose its fear of metaphysic. Having un- 
questioned and free possession of its own domain, that of knowledge 
and of fact, it will also be free to build up the intrinsic metaphysic 
of this domain- It will be free to ask after the structure of mean- 
ings which makes up the skeleton of this world of knowledge. The 
moment this point is reached, the speculative critical logic worked 
out in the development of Kantian ideas, and the positive, specific 
work of the scientific spirit will be at one. It will be seen that this 
logic is no revived, redecked scholasticism, but a complete aban- 
donment of scholasticism ] that it deals simply with the inner ana- 
tomy of the realm of scientific reality, and has simply endeavored, 
with however much of anticipation, to dissect and lay bare, at large 
and in general, the features of the same subject-matter, which the 
positive sciences have been occupying themselves with in particular 
and in detail. 

That we are almost at the point of such conflux, a point where 
the general, and therefore somewhat abstract lines of critical logic 
will run in to the particular, and therefore somewhat isolated, lines 
of positive science, is, in my opinion, the present position of logical 
theory.

WILL AM) RHASON. 

IT has always been, 1 think, the practice in civilised society to 
speak of reason or good sense as in some way infii^encing ac- 
tion. And of course it must do so, if, as we s^ippose, it forms the 
radical distinction t>etween man and the lower animals^ '* Be rea- 
sonable," we say, in reference lo action no less than to speculation. 
*' Wisdom and blood," says Shakespeare, "combating iu so tender 
a body, we have ten proofs to one that blood hath the victory,"' 
Blood here means passion. How does wisdom or knowledge com- 
bat passion? I do not say that wisdom and knowledge mean the 
same thing, but if they do not, we should like to know the differ- 
ence between them. 

In this prevalent notion of the conRict between reason and de- 
sire, it may be observed that reason is. as a rule, supposed to be 
negative or prohibitive. "Be reasonable" generally means "give 
up something you want very much." According to one account, 
the inward monitor of Socrates was always negative, and throughout 
moral philosophy, and especially throughout moralising philosophy, 
which is not quite the same thing, you find the point of view that rea- 
son conflicts with desire, and has in fact for its function very much to 
prevent you doing or caring about whatever you very particularly 
want to do or incline to care about. This is what gives rtse to the 
state of things satirised in the old saying "Any young man would 
rather face an imputation on his moral character than an imputation 
on his hor'^ematiship," If moral character means a sort of detach- 
ment from everything, this feeling is both natural and justifiable. 
The popular interpretation of Aristotle leans, in the direction of this

content with the form, the other to conaiat of a form without any

y [f fugge«t« Itself therefore that moral reaionableneit mti*t 
be a chainkctcibtie wliicb wc aticnbe to purposes of action. Then 
i^re get a variety of positive content, without relying on tlie dintinc-

we feel to be reasonable fall into Iheir right place a* very yenera) 
descrtplicns of a purpose or scheme of life which can be celled 
rejisonable* 

But the idea of a reasonable purpose requires explsmation. 

First, it is trreconcilublc; wiih abstraci HedoiuBm. Vou cannot 
have any relatione within « nin^le and uniform purpose, and reason 
always involves neljcioiis. 

S^ondlyi it i6 not the moat iatellectual purpose, the purpose 
that haa most lo do with reaaoninf;. t have tried toexpUinchls 
above- 
Thirdly, it /tfiuch A life or purpcseas possesses a aelf-con«i«ient

Utic ol any reasonable totality fan reasonable, and it is this which 



28 THE HOSIST. 

forms the general characteristic of reasonable purpose ^ua red- 
son able. 

Then what is che meaning of the self -consistent relation of parts 
to the whole in the case of a human scheme of life? 

We cannot demand that our specific purposes should he related 
consciously to the purpose of the universe ; because the universe as 
a whole is the object of theoretical knowledge only, and this does 
not furnish us with the idea of a concrete purpose at alL It seems 
then that the whole^ by consistency with which human purpose is 
or is not reasonable, must be the whole of existing human purpose^ 
taken of course as moving in a certain direction, owinf; to the modi- 
fication continuall}' introduced through the progressive realisation 
of purposes. I do not see that more than this can be said without 
entering upon the analj^sis of the actual structure of the moral world, 
of society and of history. What is important seems to me to be 
that we cannot construct the reasonable world of morality from a 
theoretical view of men in general and of nature. We have to take 
it as it is, and are then perhaps able to show that it is an organised 
movement in the direction of self-consistency of purpose. 

Is there not more than one kind or type of self -consistency 
possible, as when self-indulgence is restricted simply within the 
bounds of health and decency ? This is the question whether con- 
sistency demands completeness, i. e. whether mere omission de- 
stroys consistency. It has often been discussed, and I suppose the 
general answer is that assuming the unity iff the total meral movemcni, 
any elements omitted in any portion of the movement must uiti' 
mately have their revenge by producing disturbance. 

Then if we ask what after all is the relation of the theoretical 
reason fo the reasonable will or moral reason, the only answer 
seems to be that the moral reason, in the individual or in the race, 
is the boil}' of intellectual ideas which are In fact predominant as 
purposes in either, having become predominant by the power the}" 
have shown of crushing out or adjusting to themselves the active 
associations of all other ideas. And the power is what might be 
described as logical power l that is to say it depends on the range

them as a matter of course. 

This view sounds no doubt like an iron Determinism, and ! am 
not much concerned to defend it from that imputation. After all, if 
we are determined hy the content of our own minds, why then 1 
suppose we determine ourselves. And trivial examples of indiffer- 
ent alternatives such as*'I can blow out this candle or not as I 
please" seem to me very poor representatives of the moral wiH, 
compared with the necessary pressure of an over -mastering idea 
which drives the man up to the point of saying, "This is what must 
he decisive with one like me, and 1 have no alternative." We feel, 
as we say, that **we shall have to do it." AJmost all really serious 
action, it seems to me, is of this type. And if I have read at all 
correctly this lesson of the new psychology wliich owes its origin 
largely to Herbart^ it is an instructive meeting of extremes, that 
the most anal3'^tic of psychologies should more than ever represent 
the individual as the incarnation of a progressive order in ideas,

40 THE MON'IST. 

A complete explanation of all the legal customs of all the peo- 
ples of the earth with respect to their social causes would exhaust 
the work of ethnological jurisprudence as a^ ethnological discipline. 
But in the same way that the acquisitions of ethnology are in their 
turn utilisable towards the constitution of a universal philosophs', 
to which they will impart perhaps an entirely different character, 
so will the results of ethnological jurisprudence be in their turn 
utilisable towards the constitution of a universal science of law and 
for the philosophy of law, in which probably, through its means 
also, a powerful change will be inaugurated. These are the ideas, 
traced in their most general characters, that may be regarded as the 
fundamental ones in "ethnological jurisprudence."

guniEixi of an animal, say tii z i;Tiikp. il would ccst^c to hf- » himnan 
toul ;L>id become the fioul ci a finakc. Speech would be changed 
into a hissini;, in accnrdancc with the xnnkc's organs for uttcriD^ 
sounds. And in ihc same way all tlie feelings, all the concepts, &JI 
th« desires and ]nclination« — in vliort the whoie psychical life would] 
be that ol a &nal(e. 

Thouglu is the «oul o! larguagc. As there are no ghost-souls^ 
*o there are no ghost'thovi^htf^- And the soul is not soniethin^ dis- 
tinct from the organism. It is the lorin of th«* organism. It happens 
in lairy-tnles thai tlic Prince is iranaformt'd mto u Irog, but if n fairy 
ctuiM iransfciim a man into a irag, his soul would ctiiaiidy also lur~ 
come £1 (rog-soul Language is the visible organism of the inris^j 
ible thought, an<t a^ ie language, exactly so is tlioughc 

The ;>roblein how lanj^uafc has developed wa* fir^t answered 
by the ononiatopoeijc ihetiry, *- lltL* bow-wow tlieory " as Max MiiUer 
calls it- Language wa» conceived £s an echo of nature, ae a reBevrl 
action that lukes placa in a living and ienVm^ beiiij;. Vet this tlieory 
hud lu bo abdiidoiicd. because an hisioncal invcsti^atiuu of lanj^tiage f 
proved Thar words wJTh very few exceptiont^ w'*rc not imitations of ^ 
OKt^rziaJ sound Ah Vol lh« spirit of inveuigaiion was not daunted 
by this defeat, and the bow-wow theory reappeared in a modiliedfl 
form. Language was still tonsidcrc<l ah a irflct iirljon ; however. 
It wfli; conceived to be a reflex whith re-echoed thr imprettionft of 
naturnl phenomena as Ihey had atfected man. This was the cx- 
ckix^ation theory which seeks Che origin of language in the *' ohs 
ami alls." the STijhs and shouts of a feeling mind, Ptnf. Mai Mnllrtr 
calls: chiB theory '^ the pooh-pooh tb<?ory/" Thin theory had alto to 
be discarded because it was in conflict with the actual facts of thrcvo 
lution of ianguage. Next Noiif and Prof^Max MQlIei came with ihrirfl 
theory, called by Notrf " the synergasiic theory." which conceives 
language as the expression ol common work, also called iyy Noir( v 
the Lo^os theory, Che sympathetic theor>', and the causality theory- V 
Prof. MaK Mflller in ordei to friiestnU anyderideisol this theory aug-

only. The word ^*kind," it is true, is at least as vague as the word 
species and a naturalist may often be doubtful where to draw the 
line. Man and monkey are different in kind, and they are also more 
different in origin than Carl Vogt assumedf for man is not the de- 
scendant of any of the monkey famihes now existent. But this does 
not disprove that they are of a still remoter common origin or at 
least that they originated in the same way in some amceboid form 
as simple life-substance. 

New formations which originate through combining are as much 
new creations, i. e. things new in kind, as if they were produced 
through special-creation acts of God which are said to be creations 
out of nothing and not mere transformations. 

Man builds houses out of bricks and timbers. Is not the house 
something different in kind from the trees and the clay from which 
the materials have been taken? Is not the boiler of a steam-engine 
different in purpose and accordingly also different in kind from a 
tea-kettle? Is not every invention something different in kind? 
And is not the same true of the products of thought? Is not a tri- 
angle something different in kind from a line? And the origin of 
the former is not more miraculous than that of the latter. A triangle 
is more complex than a Hue. but its existence in the mind is not 
more of a mystery than the existence of the line. Difference in 
kind need not include difference of origin. Harmony is different 
in kind from melody. Notes in succession produce meiody, while 
simultaneous notes produce harmony. In either case it is simply a 
matter of combination. 

Professor Romanes when speaking of the passivity of sense- 
impressions seems to think of the unconsciousness of the process. 
We are not conscious of the transformation of impressions into sen- 
sations while we can become aware of our efforts to change the 
sense-material into concepts. Yet the nature of mind is throughout 
activity. And no one has perhaps insisted more stronglyon the activ- 
ity of mind than Prof. Max MuUer. But Prof, Max MiJller distin- 
guishes between the activity of the mind and the ego which as he 
supposes performs that activity. He says ("Science of Thought," 
P- 63):

half past eleven in the morning, you will arrive al Pan at half past 
four During the^e five hours on a pr<?tTy slow train you have packed 
from one patois 1o another. Th^ lower classes of Toulouse cannot

a different diiilrcE. 

The modifieaEionii which the same patois undergoes In neijihlior- 
fng localities i« not le«fi curious though of course not &0 radical. 
Roughly ^peakini^ it may he fiaid that the 5amc pfxtois is spoken from 
Mont|ie]lier to BurUeaux and fnnn Toulouse well up into the crntre 
of France, which em braces thv region where prevailed the Languc d'oc

of the hill. But since the advent of the Third Republic and the 
grand impetus given to primary instruction, these abandoned castles 
have taken a new lease of life, and been converted into school build- 
ings. The other day during an hour's drive in Upper Languedoc I 
saw two of these old useless feudal piles consecrated to popular 
nineteenth century education. What a train of reflections is thus 
suggested! Within the very same walis where some proud ignorant 
seignior once lorded it over his humble vassals, the descendants of 
these serfs, still speaking the tongue of their oppressed ancestors, 
but enjoying all the liberties then usurped by their masters, are now 
being instructed in branchesof knowledge of which the feudal knight 
had scarcely an inkling- What a revolution was that of ^89!

SOME debts there are that make the debtor proud ; 
So ours to him, who could philosophise 
With common -sense, and swocp from starry skies 
The brain-spun webs that darken like a cloud. 

We loved him, for his highest thoughts avowed 
Our own akin and less than ours allies; 
Born of the common soil but born to rise 

And light the labor of the laurel -browed. 

Justice he traced to truth; morality^ 

Back to the brutish primal needs of man ; 
And stood himself for aU the best might be. 

He wrought in words, a faithful artisan; 
And lived to shame their loutish mockery 

Whose virtue ended where his own began.

2oH THE MO?JlST. 

To the department of S[>ecia] research having for its subject the 
scnsorj'. physical, and psychical province which is not made super- 
fluous by this general orientaiion and which cannot be forestalled, 
the relations oi A /f C . . . only remain to he ascertained. This 
may be expressed symhohcally by saying that it is the purpose and 
end o{ special research to find equations of the form /(^, B, C, 

■ ■ 'J = o-- 

I hope with this to have designated the point in which I am 
in opposition to Dr, Cams, with whom I agree so much in other re- 
spects. 1 am obliged, notwithstanding the latter facj, to regard 
this point as essential, inasmuch as my whole mode of thinking and 
direction of inquiry have been changed by the view it involves, and 
because, moreover, I do not believe that the difference in question 
can be dissipated by any verbal explanations however exact. 

This whole train of reasoning has for me simply the significance 
of negative orientation for the avoidance of pseudo-problems. I 
restrict myself, moreover intentionally here, to the question of sense- 
perceptions, for the reason that at the start exact special research 
win Rnd here alone a safe basis of operations.

Huxley only allows it to Hume, because not having passed the

V CLIFFORDS AND SCHOPGNHAUCRS CONCEPTIONS OF THE

When Clifford apcaks of things in ll]ejii>vlvG7t he ilocs not lueao-j 
Kant's ihin*; in itself, he mcsn'* "neilliei ihc object in<k"ptndent 
tho ihinliinjc subject nor iho rhing mclcpendent of «pac« and limeb 
He inoan^ lUc thing n^ it woiJd lie if viewed from the lhin>E itaelf^] 

A man appr^ars to other thmlcinf hcfngs a» au relive In^dyi w 
sn orgcinittn rhnr ik in mntion : bni 10 himself Hp ^ippc^rs ns a feel-

thcmselvea con»i!tlii m our own cane of atates of Awarcnef^s, and thij 
subjt^clivity ih called by Clifford the thin^ iu jtsdf. 

A certain brain motion is in ilt tubjectivf aspect a feeling. Tlli«' 
feelinf; tn according to Cblford the thing in ilfclf of the vi;ejbL(^, ob- 
servable, and mraniiraldc motion. The thing in itself of »o-ca)led 
inantmntt' b<-iiit;** is not h-i'linjj;, luji ettmrntt nf fi-r!irg. In olher 
wo I (Is, the woT|d'Mib*Taricu is everywhere in il9*lf potcntiaJity of 
feeling and Cti^ord therefore colJ» it " mind-atuH." 

Schtipenbauer airives at ht^ conniption uf the thiny; in itael 
practically in the same way. There Is the uorld as it aj-^^eant to

I'SVCHICAL MOMSM. 

IN modern thoiighi, ever since Descartes introduced into the con- 
ception of all'Coni prising nature that perplexing distinction 
between thinking and extended substance, the problem of'reconcil- 
ing so radical a dualism has formed the main task of those who 
have busied themselves with philosophical interpretation. 

In the light of the Cartesian system there seemed to exist two 
entirely disparate, independent worlds ; the one in individual con- 
scionsness* the other outside of it ; the one made of mental, the 
other of material stuff. 

How to conceive these two antithetical worlds as interdependent 
constituents of one and the same unitarj' nature is» after many dis- 
carded attempts, still the principal endeavor of systematic thinking. 

Every student of philosophy knows how Descartes himseif as- 
cribed the evident concordance and intercommunication of the two 
worlds to the miraculous decree and intervention of the Deity ; how 
Spinoza sought to overcome the distracting dilemma by proving that 
the two substances are but attributes of one single absolute sub- 
stance ; how Leibnitz made both realms, that of inwardness and 
that of outwardness, form a consistent universe and keep consonant 
time by means of a divinely pre-established harmony; and how num- 
bers of less ilhistrioiis devices likewise failed to gain general ac- 
ceptance. 

A more important part in the development of modern thought 
was played by those other attempts, which strove to reach a monis- 
tic interpretation by showing that nature in all its manifestations is 
constituted, either solely by mind and its original endowments; or.

340 THE MONIST, 

by no means a convert to such purely psychical monism. He main- 
tains^ on the contrary, in the same issue of The Moniit (p. 85), that, 
'*The mental picture of a tree becomes a symbol for a special ob- 
ject outside of us, and is projected to the place where experience 
has taught us to expect that object.'' Consequently, the mental 
picture refers as knowledge to something outside of us, to something 
not forming part of our consciousness. 

The present writer beheves likewise, thaf the perceptual tree 
is merely a mental symbol signalising an extra-mental, sense-stimu- 
laling existent ; and that the value of this symbol as knowledge con- 
sists altogether in its implication of the existence of an entity sub- 
sisting outside our own being and its consciousness, and having 
power to affect our sensibility in definite more or less recognised 
ways- 

The editor and the present writer assert then, that the content 
of perceptual consciousness forms merely a symbolical representa- 
tion of a corresponding reality subsisting outside consciousness; 
while Professor Dewey acknowledges as really existent only self- 
consciousness, and pothing outside of it, either peripherically stimu- 
lating the senses, or centrally imparting universality to individual 
intelligence. 

The former view frankly admits duality in nature, so far as con- 
scious and extra-conscious existence are concerned- And in order 
to overcome this dualism of <*rdo itUarum and ordo rtrum — essen- 
tially the same dualism as bequeathed to us by Descartes — it has to 
show how the world within consciousness with its "mental picture/' 
and the world '^outside of us" containing the existent symbolically 
represented ;- how chese totally disparate worlds come to constitute 
a unitary nature, whose divers modes of existence are throughout 
interdependently connected. 

It is clear that the reality symbolised by the ** mental picture" — 
if any such reality actually exists — ^can be known to us solely as 
thus mentally symbolised, and not known to us in any way as it 
subsists extra-mentally *' outside of us," as it subsists in itself when 
not thus symbolically represented by our casual and intermittent 
perception of it-

35^ THE MONIST- 

knowledge of further perceptible characteristics of this same me- 
dmm. 

A monistic interpretation of nature cannot possibly be reached 
by assuming consciousness or intelligence to be ultimate reality, and 
as such the One and AIL It can be reached only by recognising 
that consciousness is a function of subjects that stand in definite re- 
lations to the rest of nature, and have power along with the other 
constituents of nature so to affect the sensibility of other sentient 
beings as to cause to arise therein the symbolical representation of 
themselves. 

Systematised experience consists in the organised totality of 
such symbolical representations. And this organised totality of ex- 
perience exists as potential possession of the subject in extra-con- 
scious latency, in what we figuratively call memory. Emerging on 
occasion into consciousness it reproduces more or less faithfully the 
order and connection of the manifold that constitutes the sense- 
affecting universe. 

In highly developed sentient subjects self- realisation or the 
**inner life,'* which arises from the activity of their emotional and 
above all their social nature, gains predominant influence over their 
sensual and perceptual experience, urging them so to transform the 
given aspect of the outer world as Co render it subservient to the as- 
pirations of that inner IJfe.

unknown- for it is Ihe struggle for existence ihat presents ihe first and most im- 
perative problems to living and feeLing beings/' 

Spirit or the elementary basis oi consciousness considered as 
a quantity, would on this supposition remain the same^ but the 
lorms of its manifestations would change. There would be more or 
less straining of spirit and accordingly more or less manifestation 
of consciousness. Or to formulate it in one sentence, we would have 
to postulate the conservation of spirit. 

Such a supposition or some similar supposition i^ tolerable 
would bring our ideas into some sort of accord with scientific cus- 
toms of explanation, and would^ extricate our minds from that state 
of utter stultificatioh into which they are cast whenever they are con- 
fronted with the relations of body and mind-

mit, under the pressure of circumstances, without a shadow of re- 
morse ? But let us further cisamine this experimen t. 

Our subject then pur the orange in his trousers^ pocket which 
stuck out very noticeably. This man might be a criminal, but he 
was not a dissembler. Looking him straight in the face I said : 
*' What have you been doing? " 

** Nothing, I have jnst done my errand. " 

*' You have stolen ! " 

*' What nonsense ! ^' 

*' What have you got in your pocket? " 

*' Nothing" (notice the absurdity of this reply). 

* ' What do you mean ? "' 

"Nothing !" 

*' What do you call that ? " 

'*Why! it'san orange : it's a very fine orange ! Ma foi .' I can't 
jniagine how it came there I " 

M- Bernheim intervenes : *' You took it from a fellow- patient, 
from a comrade ! That was very wrong.'* 

*'Yes, that^s so, but 1 wanted it. Look ! did you ever see such 
a fine orange? 1 took a fancy to it and I determined to have it. 
Besides, he fiadjt' t seen it (!) It's not stealing when it isn't missed.'* 

Then 1 asked : - ' What is that you said ? '* 

'*Why,yes, it is not stealing to take what nobody misses/* 
answers he, with a scarce perceptible cunning and significant wink, 

A few minutes later, after we had ceased noticing him, he came 
up to M. Fr^d^ricq of his own accord laughingly told him that he 
was ill the habit of abstracting tobacco from his companions on this 
same ground, that if they never missed it. it was not stealing. " II 
is all in fun, you know V 

I conclude therefore, that this subject had in him latent tenden- 
cies to theft, or if you prefer it, to pilfering. And dare any of us 
honestly confess to himself that we have not, deep down in ourselves 
the germs of any such vices? Who among the most upright of us 
does not consider himself perfectly entitled to defraud the govern 
nient, or to get the better of a Railway Company, or quietly to ap 
propriate an object which he may casually find?
