Contrasts Critical and Practical
The practical spirit, CasteII said
in explaining Arnold’s idea, gets
things done, but it is concerned
with the machinery of life, and so
concentrates on the means, which
are not as important as ends. But
the practical spirit must see itself
as it is; it must determine what
are means and what are ends, and
this is the relation of the critical
spirit to the practical spirit, said

with, Caetel said. He and Arnold
also agreed that the humanities
and science are both essential to

Castell. Arnold attributed five
