Οταν γαρ έθνη τα μη νόμον έχοντα φύσει τα του νόμου ποιή, ούτοι νόμον μη έχοντες, εαυτοίς εισι νόμος: οίτινες ενδείκνυνται το έργον του νόμου γραπτών εν ταις καρδίαις αυτών.- ST. PAUL.
Das Geschäft der Philosophie besteht nur darin, dasjenige, was rücksichtlich des Denkens den Menschen von Alters her gegolten, ausdrücklich zum Bewusstseyn zu bringen.-HEGEL.
TO JAMES LORIMER, LL.D.,
Professor of Public Law and The Law of Nature
and Nations in the University of Edinburgh.
Dear Professor Lorimer,
In dedicating to you this small contribution to the discussion of your favourite science, I take the opportunity, not only of recording my sense of gratitude for the many favours and much encouragement I have received from you ever since I was a student in your class, but also of expressing my conviction, that, although I have ventured to differ from you on some points, no one will receive this work with greater gratification than yourself, since the goal for which we strive is identical.
