Page iv of Larger aspects of socialism / by William English Walling.

to me to be its most able and consistent interpretation, that of Professor John Dewey. From the point of view of its basic assumptions, then, I might have called the present volume 'The Philosophy of Socialism"; from the point of view of its conclu- sions it might be entitled "The Sociology of Socialism." I conceive of all the intermediate subjects covered as being related equally to these two poles of my problem. But as many readers have not been in the habit of con- sidering all these subjects in connection either with phil- osophy or with sociology, either one of the above titles or even a combination of the two would have appeared to such readers as too narrow. In view of the variety of the matters discussed, it is scarcely necessary to call the reader's attention to the fact that the work consists of Socialist criticismi and not of my individual views. I have used every effort to fi1(1 a pragmatic or Socialist writer at every point, and offer my individual opinions only where such writers are either lacking or do not exist to my knowledge. Such instances are, however, relatively few, and I hope to convince my readers that the general standpoint I have presented is that of the philosophy of modern science and of the Socialist movement.
