The human mind has traveled, like Oedipus, over the sands of time, demanding with insistence, What is life? The globe, said an ancient people, rested on the howdah of an elephant, the elephant stood upon a tortoise - and then? With greater definiteness Mrs. Shelley explained how man was made in Frankenstein. The one solution is about as valuable as the other. Yet the explanation has existed all the time, for those with eyes to see, in the pages of the Bible. Even now that it has been given to it, the world claps its telescope to its blind eye, with the determination of Nelson, and declares, with all his vehemence, that it is unable to see the signal.Philosophic Materialism And IdealismIt has been said that every man, whether he knows it or not, is either a materialist or an idealist.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
