have raised, still less to master the voluminous critical literature which has subsequently gathered around them."

  1. This is the House that Descartes built.

    Two distinct substances, mind and matter, lay in the House that Descartes built.

    This is the Locke, who by his experience guarded the substances, mind and matter, that lay in the House that Descartes built.

    This is the Berkeley, who tried the Locke, and said that no matter could be in the House that Descartes built.

    This is the Hume, who knew only ideas, who doubted all matter and doubted all mind, and thought to demolish entirely the House that Descartes built.

    This is the Kant, transcendentally wise, who rebuilt from Hume, who denied mind to Berkeley, who tried the Locke, who by his experience guarded the House that Descartes built.

    Hegel this is, who abstraction denies, who succeeded to Kant, transcendentally wise, who rebuilt from Hume, who knew only ideas, who denied mind to Berkeley, who said "no matter," who attacked the Locke, who guarded the substances, mind and matter, distinct in the House that Descartes built.

    This is the Royce, with his high surmise, who interpreted Hegel's obscure disguise, who looked beyond Kant, transcendentally wise, who rebuilt from Hume, who knew only ideas, who denied mind to Berkeley, who said "no matter," while trying the Locke, whose daily experience guarded the House that Descartes built.

    This is the James, who the "many" descries, who with purpose pragmatic does pluralize, who opposes the Royce, with his high surmise, who can diverse, devious thoughts devise, which in ultimate oneness he unifies, who interpreted Hegel's obscure disguise, who in three-fold thought-forms did theorize, who succeeded to Kant, transcendentally wise, who by categories did characterize, who rebuilt from Hume, who knew not his own mind, who cared not for Berkeley, who tried the Locke, whose daily experience guarded the substances, mind and matter, that lay in the House that Descartes built.
