Excerpt from Studies in the History of Ideas, Vol. 1 Back of philosophical systems lie ultimate intellectual and emotional interests. Such interests are partly individ ual and partly collective and social. Ultimate individual interests are expressive of personality and temperament; they are much the same from age to age. Thus Professor James's distinction between the tough-minded and the tender-minded is as applicable to Heraclitus and Parmenides as to Hume and Wolff. Social and collective interests, on the other hand, are expressive of the dominant concerns of an age, and, unlike temperamental differences, vary greatly from time to time. The idealism of Berkeley, for example, is in part a personal reaction consonant with a deep religious interest, and in part a refutation of scientific materialism which was an expression of the mechanistic interest of the age succeeding the foundation of Newtonian physics.
