Metaphysics and Social Attitudes
by Theodore Brameld - 1938
PHILOSOPHERS seem to enjoy quarreling among themselves over problems, which, to the layman, often look futile. The technical terminology used and the history of philosophy presupposed may have led occasional readers to something of this feeling about the articles on metaphysics and social attitudes which The Social Frontier is publishing this year. Such a feeling, if it anywhere exists, is quite erroneous. Few more fundamental issues have arisen in American philosophy than that over which the two philosophers, Professors Blanshard and Hook, and the philosopher-sociologist, Professor Sorokin, have clashed in these articles. The Social Frontier is to be commended for recognizing the importance of a question which journals in the field of "technical" philosophy itself have considered too little.
