He was moved to action only by the steady unfolding of events that, in their threat to the individual and to conscience, could no longer be ignored. Published init was well received.

This collection included "The Poet", "Experience", "Gifts", and an essay entitled "Nature", a different work from the essay of the same name. He followed his intellect and his conscience, but not without awareness of the tension between life and philosophy.
