The Introduction begins, This book was written, originally and primarily, for use in a course entitled Introduction to Contemporary Civilization, required of all Freshmen in Columbia College. It is an attempt to give a birds-eye view of the processes of human nature, from mans simple inborn impulses and needs to the most complete fulfillment of these in the deliberate activities of religion, art, science, and morals. It is hoped that the book may give to the student and general reader a knowledge of the fundamentals of human nature and a sense of the possibilities and limits these give to human enterprise.
