An Introduction to Philosophy ought to live up to its name. It must tell the young collegian, and the presumably older non-collegian who takes it up with serious intent, plenty of essential things. It must answer the questions naturally to be expected of the one who wishes to be introduced,—questions such as these: What is philosophy? How did it come into existence? What interesting things have happened to develop it or to hinder its development? What great names are identified with its effort? What have the bearers of these names done for philosophy? Is there a single true philosophy? Can there be a in reality false philosophy? Can one know true from false? What, in outline, are the things philosophy speaks of?
Some such litany of inquiries, duly adapted, would be recited,—a minimum of inaudibly in his own mind and heart,—by any typically curious human being about to be introduced to a Personage. And philosophy is as interesting and as exciting as any Personage, despite the fact that he were spelled in capitals right through.
