Description

This book seeks to prove the evolution of ideas and social advancement. The author writes in the Preface that "Social advancement is as completely under the control of natural law as is bodily growth. The life of an individual is a miniature of the life of a nation. These propositions it is the special object of this book to demonstrate."

And he further writes that "Nations, like indivduals, die. Their birth presents an ethnical element; their death, which is the most solemn event that we can contemplate, may arise from interior or exterior causes. Empires are only sand-hills in the hour-glass of Time; they crumble spontaneously away by the process of their own growth."

The author introduces us to a Pythagorean maxim, one of the first documented attempts in western philosophical tradition to use words to deceive people. That maxim is "Not unto all should all be made known."

Joseph McCabe writes about this work that it "rendered great service to Rationalism, especially by pointing out that it was the Spanish Arabs who really lead to the recovery of civilization" after the Dark Ages ended.
