The reader is warned that the first part is to be regarded only as preparatory and intermediate, that its point of view mostly belongs to the practical category and that its special function is to act as a transition to the far higher ultimate one. The second part carries the student upward to the mountain top where he will be able to see that the ideas and practices which served him well heretofore, were really only convenient and useful steps cut in the mountain side. They are not to be dallied on if he seeks truth as it is in itself and if he will be satisfied with nothing less than reality. The change of outlook which comes at the top will necessarily change his earlier evaluations.
