liberty, I should dedicate this book to the Australian people for my memory of their kindness will not fade, and I would fain let them know that I am grateful. I have dedicated it to one who labours continually for their welfare, and to the memory of, z great Idealist-his Teacher and my own. The book consists of lectures delivered before the University of Sydney.

But the vritten must differ from the spoken word, and I have recast the lectures and added to them. CONTENTS PAGE I. THE TOOLS A KI THE TASK . . l 11. FREEDO M F IRST T HE BLADE . . 31 111.

Philosophy might once more engage the attention and the good-will of men. She might again lift up her voice grown so silent, and a world which had become well-nigh deaf to her might again be willing to listen. The spirit of the time immersed in matters temporal, its whole powers engaged in a fearful strife for the outward means of life, might now turn its thoughts inwards upon itself and take possession of the riches of its own content.
