Excerpt from The Philosophy of the Humanities
The sum-total of our experience, then, under the law of habit, or tendency to organization, conditions all our concrete willing and feeling and thinking; in other words, all spiritual activity and hence all culture is the result o... f this tendency of spirit under the law of progress, which seems to hold in history as in biology, to convert disorganization into organization, chaos into cosmos, by the way. Of habit. The power of experience expresses itself in its tendency to habituate. Experience, become habitual, tends more and more to become a law. Habitual experience of climate becomes a climatic need. Habitual experience of social and political conditions converts those conditions into laws of life for individual and community. Habitual experience of the beautiful makes art a second nature. Habitual experience of science becomes a permanent motive of intellectual activity.
