THE GENTEEL TRADITION AT BAY

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1931. First Edition, First Printing. The author contends that in their insistence upon absolute values, the “new humanists” have more in common with the severities of Calvinism than with the humanist movement of the Renaissance and represent the last stand of the “genteel tradition” in America. Concludes that truth and morality do not require a supernatural sanction. Hardcover with dust jacket. 74 pages.
