Excerpt from The Ultimate Generalization: An Effort in the Philosophy of Science That Science has a philosophy is well known to all who have any proper conception of what is meant by the theory of Evolution. In the following pages that doctrine is assumed as already virtually established. The main conception which it is their object to set forth is itself an illustration of the progress of ideas from the indefinite to the definite, for it has been hinted at by thinkers in all ages, while later ones have approached it till they have almost had it in their grasp. The development of it into its full breadth and universality, taking that to be possible, might be called a larger integration of thought or knowledge than has ever yet been evolved. Instead, however, of regarding the evolution theory as "a philosophy of creation (already) carried as far as the human mind can penetrate," this essay makes the attempt to take still another step. Neither does it accept any limitation, hitherto set, of the field, or of the possibilities, of scientific investigation; on the contrary, it asserts the domain and the future achievements of science to include The All, in a larger sense than ever before claimed.
