PRESIDENT CAMPBELL TALKS
ON “ACTIVISM” IN ASSEMBLY
(Continued from first page.)
As for individualism itself, he says
that each is a part of the whole, and
owes individual development only to
the good of the race, not to the self
ish purpose of getting all you can out
of life, at the expense of others. The
race is made up of individuals, and
in the proper development of the in
dividual lies the secret of perfection
of the race.
Eucken takes up the principle of
higher and lower values in life.
There are things distinctively good
and things as distinctively bad; there
is the level Qf the senses, and then
the highest level,—that of mind or
spirit. Man in his early life is the
supreme development of the animal;
he has the spiritual to gain. He may
gain a personality and be a distinct
individual, or not. But only in the de
velopment of personality and the
striving for the higher life, lies the
hope of immortality.
Universities Have High Mission.
As to the development of this
! higher plane, President Campbell
i said: “Eucken would say that the
universities should deal with the
higher things of life. It is the busi
ness of the university to reveal to the
student the presence of a will; the
thing that makes him an individual
in the race.”
Eucken believes there is absolute
truth, and that things work well be
cause they are true, and applicable to
everyday life. He says to reach
truth through living it. He believes
there is no need of depending on the
intellect, and really logic will not
prove truth, because it will often
prove things absolutely contradictory.
Logic leads to fatalism, and he be
lieves in freedom and says: “Try your
fatalism, and then freedom., and see
which works best and gives most hap
piness.” He believes that truth is
life itself and that the proof is in
Activism flood Working Theory.
Concluding, President Campbell
said: “Eueken would weld into one
working philosophy all the good
points of each theory. And after all,
wouldn’t it make a pretty good life?
Win a knowledge of truth by living
it. Then gain personality through
the truth thus revealed. Acquire an
abundance of knowledge and a desire
to get it. Avoid death by accident,
that is, by unnecessary and destruc
tive elements to come into your body.
Develop an aesthetic sense, an appre
ciation for all that is beautiful. Ac
quire social virtues and love for man;
gain a larger outlook, and a religious
attitude toward the whole universe.
And finally, comes the love of God.
and reverence. Wouldn’t that make
j a good life? The great men of the
race have, in the main, had these
