V. The Name and the Soul



"To classify things is to name them, and the name of a thing, or of a group of things, is its soul; to Itnow their names is to have power over their soul. Language, that stupendous product of the collective mind, is a duplicate, a shadow-soul, of the whole structure of reality ; it is the most effective and comprehensive tool of human power, for nothing, whether human or superhuman, is beyond its reach." F. M. CoRNFORD,
