dc.description.abstract "As decided at the close of the last term we shall concentrate during the coming months on the nature and structure of society and government. Such a study can be started in three ways: with the basic beliefs men have been holding regarding the nature of society and the function and aims of government; with the actual problems of social life which society and government have been asked to master; and with the institutions - ranging from the family to the international gold-standard or the proposed world-court - by means of which societies have been trying to organize reality and to solve actual problems according to their beliefs and aims. We shall go the first way - if only because our time demands, above all, clear beliefs and true values. But we shall not be satisfied with the purely historical or purely philosophical study of principles and theories. We will also try to learn how to apply basic concepts, beliefs and values to concrete problems. At the same time the members of the group will be given an opportunity to do a larger piece of work on their own." en_US
