The Neglect of All Fine Thinking

THE temporary decline of theology had involved the neglect of philosophy and all fine thinking, and Bernard Shaw had to find shaky justifications in Schopenhauer for the sons of God shouting for joy. He called it the Will to Live — a phrase invented by Prussian professors who would like to exist but can’t. Afterwards he asked people to worship the Life-Force; as if one could worship a hyphen.”
~G.K. Chesterton: “George Bernard Shaw.”
