Excerpt from Metaphysics: A Lecture But it must not be forgotten that the old is not always the false, nor the new always the true, as was illustrated in a notice once given of a book - perhaps one of the popular contributions to modern science - ia which notice it was remarked, by way of commenda tion, that the book in question had in it much that was new and also much that was true; and by way of eriti cism, that what was true in it was old and what was new in it was false. The only rational rule of mental pro cedure is to prove all things, whether new or old, and hold fast to that which is good. By the faithful asser tion of this catholic principle of judgment, we loyally venture to believe that our queen is destined to recover the crown and royal state of which she has been de prived, and to hold again her position in the universi ties of the world, less exclusively and pretentiously, no doubt, and yet with an empire subject to her restored Sceptre, embracing whole kingdoms which, under the old regime, were not yet discovered. The science of the present reveals, daily, that it is not self-sufficient, and that, just as a building of large and imposing dimen sions requires beneath its super-structure a foundation that sinks out of the view of the senses, so science rests on the transcendental and unseen realities of the world of metaphysics. Faith is more profound than reason. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
