The neurologist, like every other man, must be his own philosopher, must step back and survey his daily life and work and consider their meaning and implication for the world around him. No serious and candid man, least of all the neurologist, can ignore the varying human scene or fail to consider it in the light of his special knowledge and training. The problem of democracy—how man can live in peace and good will on a crowded and shrinking planet—demands solution. The problem of the individual—how man can live in happiness with himself—is to be resolved. It has been said that ours is a uniquely neurotic time in history.1 Whether this be true or not, ours is indeed an age of unreason,2 with its conflict and bitterness, its fears and hatreds in peace, even greater than in war, its starvation amid plenty, its keen personal discontents.
