Excerpt from Dare to Be Wise: An Address, Delivered Before the "Heretics" Society in Cambridge, on the 8th December, 1909
AT the other end of the world is a University' which has adopted for its own the motto which best expresses the nature of a University: Sapere Aude. It is of the duty laid on our Society to follow this injunction that I wish to speak.
Our object is to promote discussion upon religion, philosophy, and art. And in discussing religion and philosophy there is a special significance in the command, Dare to be wise. In seeking truth of all sorts many virtues are needed, industry, patience, humility, magnanimity. And courage also is often needed in the search, since the Observer Of nature must Often risk his life in his observations. But there is another need for courage when we approach religion and philosophy.
