Quests Old and New
All the studies or sketches in this volume are illustrative of the quest of reality, the search for truth, or the restless striving of the human soul for the satisfaction of its needs, spiritual or philosophical, mystical or psychical. The subjects are gleaned from the past and present, from east and west; and all of them, each in their different ways, seem to the writer to be of deep interest and great importance, even though some are little known and may appear on first acquaintance somewhat strange. Contents: The Way of the Spirit in Ancient China; The Doctrine of the True Man in Ancient Chinese Mystical Philosophy; Spiritual Reality in Progressive Buddhism; The Ideal Life in Progressive Buddhism; Some Features of Buddhist Psychology; The Doctrine of Reincarnation Ethically Considered; Some Mystical Experiments on the Frontiers of Early Christendom; The Meaning of Gnosis in the Higher Forms of Hellenistic Religion; 'The Book of the Hidden Mysteries' by Hierotheos; The Rising Psychic Tide; Vaihinger's Philosophy of the 'As If'; Bergson's Intuitionism; Eucken's Activism.
