Society.


Social life is made up of individual lives, that is why it contains everything which belongs to each person individually. Still, the situation here is more complex. Each person has his own path of life, his own plans for tomorrow, his own freedom and his own submission to necessity. When possible, this can be brought to agreement, but sometimes a conflict may arise.

We recognize that humans differ from animals by the loftiness of their objectives. If we apply the same measure to society as a whole, can one really name the effort to limit the life of the latter within the sphere of purely practical, although comfortable and convenient existence, based on the assumption that this existence – of an individual as well as of the society - is purely "rational," earthly, short-term and, in effect, senseless, "true progress" ? But it is such progress that is today recognized as truly scientific.
