More years ago than one cares to remember, some of us, some enthusiasts among us I should say, proposed the creation of a periodical to be called The Philosophic Life. But the cultured Cambridge University graduate among us objected to the proposal. He pointed out that such a publication would be mostly for the use of beginners because articles would necessarily be short and compressed, and philosophical subjects with their mystical profundity and metaphysical subtlety could not be adequately treated within such limitations; further, the pressure of preparing material for a dateline would mean hurried writing--also an unphilosophical procedure. So in the end the proposal was dropped.
