Excerpt from The Open Court, Vol. 39: A Monthly Magazine, Devoted to the Science of Religion, the Religion of Science, and Extension of the Religious Parliament Idea; May, 1925 Higher Education, formulated in its recent report. According to this report, based on a comprehensive investigation, modern lan guage study in the British Empire should be no longer limited to the different national literatures as such, isolated, as it were, in a cul tural vacuum, but be extended to include the main factors of the cultural environments in which those literatures developed, as the arts, the art-craft, architecture, philosophy, history, social conditions. This transition from a traditional, narrowly formal and verbal view to the view Of language as the final storehouse of the entire history of a race foreshadows the coming general introduction into educational practice, Of Herder's conception of the universal func tion of language in the genetic unity of all civilization. Books are the treasury not Only of words, but Of the deepest experiences, the best knowledge, the highest faiths and ideals Of each people; they are the most complete witnesses to the civiliza tion, the living voice Of the spirit, of each race. Out of this convie tion, or rather, out of the deepening and widening of the significance Of this conviction, has arisen the new aim Of modern language study. There were at the Modern Language Meeting more than a thou sand representatives Of higher education from the East and the Mid dle West, and some from the Pacific Coast. One of the principal subjects of conversation was the relation of Germanistics to Ameri can culture. Among the leading university teachers the conviction is again finding open expression, that there are only three modern civilizations of absolutely the first rank: the English, the Romance, and the Germanic; and a good will to assist German back to its proper place in American civilization is active in the circles that will ultimately determine the course Of higher culture in this country. These men are fully aware Of the indissoluble interdependence Of the three greatest types Of modern civilization; they realize fully the vital injury in icted on the cultural progress Of America by a continued neglect of the works Of the German mind; and they are ready to make a reality, more far-reaching and more wholesome than ever before, Of the community of 'the highest values and achievements of humanity.
