Item Description...
These twelve essays, as varied in style and scope as sculpture and astrophysics, all point out the truth of Yves Simon's belief that "the mind has for its end the perfection of the mind itself."

Frank Lloyd Wright looks forward to a time when architecture will become organic, suited to its purpose and materials. Arnold Schoenberg believes that "everything of supreme value in art must show heart as well as brain." Marc Chagall thinks that the modern world is seeking a new artistic language which will bring about a new art. Alfeo Faggi, sculptor, reveals what to him is the true field of art: things not as they are but as they should be.

Heinrich Brning, once chancellor of Germany, and Senator J. W. Fulbright illustrate from experience the need for reasonableness and intellect in statesman and legislator. Robert M. Hutchins recommends the intellectual virtues: courage, fortitude, justice, and prudence.

C. H. McIlwain discusses the duty of the historian to represent the past truly, even at the risk of his own popularity. S. Chandrasekhar, astronomer, shows that "science is a perpetual becoming," a gradual building of truth on truth. John von Neumann pleads that mathematics should not get away from its empirical source. Mortimer J. Adler concludes "What is common to all forms of intellectual work is their concern with truth."
