Excerpt: . . . seems vague, illusive, unreal, but matter slipping away into modes of motion, dissolving into mere activity, and so shading off toward some great reality, full of life and energy, --not matter, and therefore spirit. Science has led up to the point where matter, and not God, becomes the unknowable. A little further struggle through this tangle of matter, and we may stand on a peak of Darien, in wild surmise before the ocean of spirit. --Rev. T. T. Hunger. The Divine forces were forming man in the gaseous chaos of the beginning, ere matter had rounded itself into light-giving orbs, or whirled off its rotating and balanced suns. Each particle of oxygen, each atom of lime waited for him, ready to obey his thought. The earth, the water, and the air worked for him. The frost and the glacier were his plows. The gases massed themselves into huge mountain chains to serve his turn, and when, in the great day of creation, the hour of humanity struck at last upon this crust of soil which the ages, and seasons, and forces had refined, Man, the Microcosm, is placed to govern matter as the vehicle of power higher than its own, and as the organ of the Reason that made the world. --Emerson. THE ART OF NEVER FORGETTING. NEW SERIES. --NUMBER ONE. BY JOHN LATHAM. We Lave set forth quite fully in the previous series the physiological and psychic fundamentals of a good memory, and shall now proceed to consider the various aids and advantages of system and method.

This item ships from La Vergne,TN., RareBooksClub, University of California Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 420 pages. In its natural condition the Sacramento Valley was a flood-ravaged region where an inland sea a hundred miles long regularly formed during the rainy season, to drain slowly away by the summer months. Today the Valley is marvelously productive, with a great capital city at its center, but only after a seventy-year struggle to devise and build an intricate thousand miles of levees and drains. Robert Kelley sets that battle within the encompassing national political culture, which produced, through the Republican and Democratic parties, widely diverging ideas about how best to reclaim the Valley from flood. He draws on approaches developed in the field of policy analysis to examine the relationship between American political culture and environmental policy-making. We find that the prolonged controversy over the Sacramento Valley illuminates American decision-making, then and now. This item ships from multiple locations.
