Excerpt from Chapters on Greek Metric
IT is a mark of a living and growing civilization, in contrast with a stagnant or declining one, that in the former men are ever renewing the critical examination of the fundamental notions. This is true also of every separate art or science. From each new vantage ground attained the question is put anew about one principle and belief after another, supposed to be firmly estab lished: But after all, is it well-founded, is it true, is it fundamental? To some people this is disturbing; they fancy that the very framework is dissolving and founda tions disappearing. Yet all the While out of the con fusion of decay, in which the outworn vanishes, there is growing up a new and sounder life. The questioning attitude toward the Old is an essential condition of such growth; all of the Old that is worth preserving finds its place in a newly organized and higher type.
