The Base of All Metaphysics.

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.


AND now gentlemen, A word I give to remain in your memories and minds, As base and finalè too for all metaphysics. (So to the students the old professor, At the close of his crowded course.) Having studied the new and antique, the Greek and Germanic  
Kant having studied and stated, Fichte and Schelling and Hegel,   [ begin page 102 ]ppp.01663.108.jpg Stated the lore of Plato, and Socrates greater than Plato, And greater than Socrates sought and stated, Christ divine having  
 studied long,
I see reminiscent to-day those Greek and Germanic systems, See the philosophies all, Christian churches and tenets see, Yet underneath Socrates clearly see, and underneath Christ the  
 divine I see,
The dear love of man for his comrade, the attraction of friend to  
Of the well-married husband and wife, of children and parents, Of city for city and land for land.
