The academic teaching of philosophy is a necessary part of educational effort but it is mainly metaphysical and logical, an intellectual effort without soul, without intuitive feeling, and a collection of varying human opinions, speculations, and theories. To become fully worthy of its title it must remake men, awaken their higher possibilities, show also the need and practice of non-thought.
