Excerpt from Ideas in Context Broadly, these problems are in four areas. Part One treats of man in society, of how man has created the society in which he lives, and how he in turn is affected by that society. Part Two investigates that attribute of man which chiefly makes him human - his mind - and touches on the related problems of what we know and how we know it. These two parts of the book deal chiefly with the nature of man, outside and in. Parts Three and Four treat of the world he lives in, again first from the outside and then from the in. Part Three examines our changing attitudes toward the external world during the last four centuries of the scientific age. And Part Four views various ideas of good and evil which have taken form in the last century and a half. Around each of these four problems, then, are grouped in loose constellation a dozen or so statements of attitude and conviction, and each piece takes on added meaning when read not only in the light of its own group but of other groups as well.
