I propose in the following essays to dissect the concept of motion (development, evolution) in each of the above forms of order to find within each a pattern common to all. We will investigate the possibility that a single, uniform pattern exists in nature which coordinates all levels of reality into a single, comprehensive whole.
The central thesis of these essays is that each of the levels given above builds upon the previous level, and repeats its underlying structure. Thus a clear understanding of the key relationships and elements of philosophy assists in the understanding of the key elements of economics, the key elements of racial history, and next of national history, law, psychology, biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. This linking of similar levels, a “chain of being,” is an ancient and modern idea, as we shall see.
