Abstract:

"The essays comprising this volume are based upon a series of addresses delivered by the author before the New York high schools under the joint auspices of the New York Board of Education and the New York Chamber of Commerce. Surmounting the generally-accepted arts and sciences of our highly developed age is a super-art, recorded by Plato but by no means universally practiced since his day--The Art of Living. Man, nature's final effort in the scheme of evolution, the unchallenged conqueror of the world, is less efficient in many habits of life than the animals which centuries ago vanished in his path of progress. Ambitious men and women must prepare to meet hew standards of measurement--Intellectually, physically, morally. Whatever the ambition--to become a stenographer, an engineer, a banker, or even the President of the United States--one must first be a real man before he can build any of these. This book has been written for those schools that recognize this truth and have grown weary in well-directed effort to train men and women for the professions by a composite of mathematics, language, science, shorthand, etc., homeopathically or hypodermically administered. In short, the book has been written for all men and women who concede that the best school can give only a poor start in the direction of a real education; that we never graduate at all but are always in a state of educational transit; that man's intellectual and spiritual unfoldment is a matter quite apart from books; and that the greatest school of all is the classroom wherein he finds himself both teacher and student--the school of self-discovery and development"--Book.
