Excerpt from Knowledge and Culture
In the Second Part a comprehensive view is given of knowledge as represented in several Of its principal divisions. Such a view may serve to show at once the scope Of culture and the end to be aimed at in order to its attainment. Knowledge must, indeed, be acquired in its parts but these parts should be fitted together as a whole, and their acquisition should have respect from first to last to the whole. Only thus can a complete culture be gained. The whole of knowledge as represented by individ ual culture may indeed vary, in different cases, in the proportion of its parts; yet no part should be lacking, and, for entire truth and harmony, the parts should be given a rank in accordance with their relative importance.
