The Scepticism of Believers asks us to accept realities in exchange for dreams while in Dreams and Realities dreamland’ is considered a pleasant refuge for the far less vigorous sentiment of men who see that the world has escaped from their guidance. Other essays include What is Materialism? Newman’s Theory of Belief, Toleration and The Religion of All Sensible Men.Thinker’s Library captures the works of great minds on a multitude of subjects.
