“Imagine that all knowledge is, as yet, one science, and that the philosophic mind undertakes to set aside and subdivide those portions of it which are of most importance as a guide to conduct. Must not the philosophic mind, in the first palce, come to the decision that all knowledge concerning man himself should be studied as a unity, and used as a basis for ethics?” Daniel Folkmar, “Sociology as Based upon Anthropology,” Journal of Social Science (December, 1897) No. XXXV, 261.
