About this product
- DescriptionMoreover, institutions are never an adequate expression of the ideal. Men are never as good as the goodness they kw. Institutions reveal the same truth. The margin between what society kws and what it is makes radicalism possible. In his introduction to The Revolt of Islam, Shelley expresses the same thought: The French Revolution may be considered as one of those manifestations of a general state of feeling among civilized mankind produced by a defect of correspondence between the kwledge existing in society and the improvement or gradual abolition of political institutions. The greater that this defect of correspondence becomes, the more intense will be the radicalism that inevitably ensues. Radicals want a change. The extent of this change differentiates them fairly well among themselves. Some would completely sweep away every existing institution. Thus Shelley thought the great victory would be won if he could exterminate kings and priests at a blow. Let the axe strike at the root, the poison-tree will fall.
- Author BiographyThe author of this dissertation was born in Glassburn, Nova Scotia, November 7, 1881. He attended the public school there until the fall of 1896, when he entered St. Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, N. S. In November, 1900, he entered the Propaganda College, Rome, and was ordained a priest in 1904. The years 1908 and 1909 he devoted largely to the study of English literature, and in July, 1910, passed the preliminary post-graduate examinations in English at St. Francis Xavier University. In October of the same year he entered the Catholic University of America, where he pursued studies in English under Professors Lennox and Hemelt; in sociology under Dr. Kerby, and in economics under Dr. O'Hara. To these gentlemen and to the Rt. Rev. Bishop Shahan for kindly encouragement he wishes to acknowledge a debt of gratitude.
