Example text

He may be gifted in a special degree with workmanlike aptitudes, may by nature be stout or dextrous or keen-sighted or quick-witted or sagacious or industrious beyond his fellows; but with all these gifts, so long as he has assimilated none of this common stock of workmanlike knowledge he remains simply an admirable parcel of human raw material; he is of no effect in industry.

So that associated with the pragmatic attention there is found more or less of an irrelevant attention, or idle curiosity. This is more particularly the case where a higher range of intelligence is present.

But this early-modern law of cause and effect — the law of efficient causes — is of an anthropomorphic kind. “Like causes produce like effects,” in much the same sense as the skilled workman’s product is like the workman; “nothing is found in the effect that was not contained in the cause,” in much the same manner. These dicta are, of course, older than modern science, but it is only in the early days of modern science that they come to rule the field with an unquestioned sway and to push the higher grounds of dialectical validity to one side.
