Description

From the Back of the Book

Students of history, philosophy, science and aesthetics will find here a wealth of information from a definite viewpoint.

Liverpool Evening Express

Shows a gift for brief and pungent expression an unflinching honesty of purpose has much sound advice to give both on physical and mental culture.

Literary Guide

This is a book every student, academic or otherwise should certainly acquire.

Edinburgh Evening News

The book covers a wide field of knowledge, and from it emerges a philosophy-a religion of service.

Teachers World

Packed with valuable suggestion, expressed with fine lucidity and a moving sincerity.

The free Thinker

Worthy of a place in all libraries.

Plebs

To a Young Fellow Rationalist

These short hints on self-culture are addressed to you in the hope that you will try to make the best use of your life according to the philosophy of Rationalism.

Life is a wonderful privilege, it imposes great duties, it demands the fulfillment of great tasks and the realization of noble ideals. As our revered philosopher-poet Lucretius has taught us, Life is a racial heritage that you receive for use and development and not as a personal possession, you stand between the past and the future; the world is yours to enjoy, to organize, and to reconstruct. Your lot is cast in these sad times of turmoil and tribulation. Mankind anxiously asks if there is a way out of the gloom and horror of to-day into light and life. It is for you to blaze the trail for great movements that will build up a happier world.

If you wish to develop your personality as a free and cultured citizen, these hints and notes may help you in your struggles and strivings. They are not exhaustive, but only suggestive.

Man's personality needs growth and development in its four different aspects: Intellectual, Physical , Aesthetic, and Ethical. These are the four facets of a compete life. I shall discuss how you may successfully pursue this fourfold Self-culture, as far as your opportunities permit.

Preface

In this little book, I have tried to indicate and explain some aspects of the message of Rationalism for the young men and women of all countries. If it helps them in their efforts for self-improvement in the last degree, I shall be amply rewarded.

I shall be grateful for criticism and suggestions from fellow-Rationalists.

For the choice of books in English, I may recommend J.M. Robertson's excellent and indispensable book, Courses of study
