What he has attempted to doMoreExcerpt from Authordoxy: Being a Discursive Examination of Mr. G. K, Chestertons OrthdoxyThis book is no more a serious exposition of Rationalism than Mr. Chestertons Orthodoxy is a serious exposition of Christianity. What he has attempted to do in that book is, he tells us, in a vague and personal way... to state the philosophy in which I have come to believe. What I have attempted to do in this book - which was written during the war, and more because I felt inclined to write it than because I wanted to publish it - is to state by way of a vague and personal commentary on Mr. Chestertons volume why it has not converted me to his philosophy.Mr. Chesterton is all for the common people against the specialist. Well, I am one of the common people, and I have jotted down some of the things that have occurred to me in the course of reading his book.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
