GENERAL INDEX




HE feature of this index which, it is hoped, will give it a pecu-
Har usefulness is the series of minor subject-indexes it em-
bodies. "Law," "Art," "Religion," "Literature," "Ethics
and Philosophy," "Finance and the Currency," "The United States,"
"England," "Canada," "Scotland," "Ireland," "France," "Rome,"
"Greece," etc., have each grouped under it references which are in-
tended to serve not only for casual investigation, but for the systematic
study of the text from each of the several standpoints the great think-
ers and orators whose productions are included in the work, were ac-
customed to occupy. While the subjects have been extensively cross-
indexed, those who are using the General Index for casual investiga-
tion are requested to keep in mind the fact that close analysis of the
contents of the work is made in the several sub-indexes which should
be consulted before it is concluded that research has been exhaustive.

In using the General Index to trace the course of ideas, of the men
who represent them and of facts, developing into history, reference
to the Chronological Index will give the time-sequence of idea, as it
develops from century to century through representative men.

Used together, the two indexes are intended to analyze the work
completely and also to serve as a mnemonic system in the study of the
history of civilization. It is believed that a little practice in using them
together, connecting the development of ideas with representative
names, will be a powerful aid to memory, if the Chonological Index
is properly used to "time" the evolution of idea into facts which ac-
count for existing civilization.

Together, the two indexes brief the ideas which have controlled
in civilization since the Age of Pericles, so that the course of develop-
ment may be traced back from the present by decades and by centuries,
as the association of ideas connects men born in tlie same decade or
century with those living before or after them. Facts are so indexed
as to connect most easily with the ideas which account for them.
Both indexes are intended to show the continuous connection between

idea and fact in all history.
