Therefore, in concrete terms, is Congress the President's master, or is it only one branch of the government with a definite but united activity of its own, without that sweeping sovereign authority which in course of time has been acquired by its parent body, the Parliament of Great Britain? On this point Lincoln never wavered.

This, he evidently thinks, would be a rare contingency, most physical truths sufficiently concrete and real for practice being empirical. It is no exaggeration to say, that M. Comte gradually acquired a real hatred for scientific and all purely intellectual pursuits, and was bent on retaining no more of them than was strictly indispensable.

Before recommencing, under better auspices, the attempt made with such imperfect success by the early logicians, we must take notice of an unfortunate ambiguity in all the concrete names which correspond to the most general of all abstract terms, the word Existence.

"Something like an hypothesis certainly seems necessary," Breckon assented, with a smile for the gravity of their discourse. "We shouldn't have the atomic theory without it." She did not say anything, and he decided that the atomic theory was beyond the range of her reading. He tried to be more concrete.

Braithwaite, should be constantly in use in the classroom as furnishing concrete illustration of the principles discussed in books like mine. The other kind of course which I have had in mind is the one dealing with the works of a single poet.

They always chatted a bit and then went on with their work, placing their plaster carefully and bunting it smooth on the inside, modeling with clay a house as well suited to their needs as is the concrete mansion a human architect makes suited to the needs of man. And if you think it is a simple matter to make a nest of clay, just go to the wisest architect you know and ask him these questions.
