Interpretations Of Man
By SUSAN LEWIS and
The Parable of the Wreck, an
illustration of five Western inter
pretations of man and his exist
ence in the world, was presented
by Dr. John D. Wild, head of the
Harvard University Philosophy
Department, at Sunday night's
opening session of the lfMJO Caro
Alter Wild's address, sponsored
by the Senior Class, a panel, com
posed of Irofcssor Wilfrid Desan
(Georgetown University). Maurice
N'atanson (UNO and William Po
teat (Duke) elaborated upon and
criticized the main address.
Speaking on "Concepts of
Man," Wild presented the story
of an airplane crash in the
Himalayas in order to illustrate
what he considers to be five of
the most "influential living
ways of thought and life in the
Wild asked his audience, which
included radio listeners across the
-tate. to imagine five men strand-
eel in me .tumaiayas wun inmsy
iquipmcnt and a two day supply
of food. He then outlined the al
ternatives facing the men, each. in
terms of a different interpreta
tion of man.
Wild's "concepts of man" were
1. The Western Rationalist:
This man believes in a world al
ready fixed and established apart
1 from him. His mind is objective
and outwardly directed, and not
bothered by acute self-consciousness.
Freedom is simply to act in
accordance with the rational order
of things which hardly ever
means anything very new, since
this order is already fixed and

quickly" is qualified.
Help will also be welcomed in
advertising and selling,
All writing for the next issue of
the Quarterly, which will appear
this semester, should be submitted
as soon as posiblet Editor Nancy
I Combs stated.
Persons Interested working on
the Quarterly are requested to at
tend a staff meeting tonight at
7:15 in Roland Parker I.
The meeting will end "in plenty
of time for the Symposium." Miss
in a disappointment in expecta
tions and political reaction. "This
political reaction will be an ir
rational type of action, tending in
the direction of Fascism," he said.
The solution ae proposed was a
new economy, not a -ne.v view of
eccnemy, in the direction of social
izing the big corporations.
"The United States needs to go
j1 .lCi ii r-
to i ne leu or we win De in lor a
long period of more private mis
cry," S.veezy concluded.
Robert C. Wcod, final panelist
an I associate professor of poli
tical science at MIT, stressed
that this pessimistic, bleak fu
ture is not a modern plight. "The
(Tlficulty is that we have no set
of theories to grasp what our so
ciety is all abent," he said.
"I do not thn.k the Dig World
slviuld be feared.
"The answer is not to turn our
back en science and to lapse into
mys.icism. ihis is not the way out,"
vast flux of nature. He cannot ac
cept any divine end in nature. His
world is based on a "natural order
without order. Man is an insig
nificant part of a vast, inhuman
order in which he is free to at
tempt to overcome it.
3. Positivistic Man: The Positiv
ist believes that there are observ
able facts that can be fitted into
a framework of laws. On the basis
of these laws, reliable predictions
can be made and technical instru
ments devised for control. But the
positivist encounters trouble in
his recognition that science pro
vides only means, not ends.
4. Existential Man who is ready
to Leap: This existentialist i.i
much like modern man, but is
filled with more cynicism. His
willingness to leap, to attempt to
save himself on the premise that
it is his only chance. Since he
must die anyway, he might as
well die with a sense of sell-respect.
5. This final concept is more
open and flexible This man does
I not attempt to reduce mystery to
the alien forces he knows, he
leaves his world "open to the pos
sibility of saving forces from be
yond," Nevertheless he realizes
that he "cannot remain inactive,
"because there is no automatic
rule to insure his safety."
Wild summed up the so-call
ed modern concept as "existen
tial pattern of the living 'religi
ous' thought of our time."
In conclusion he stated that
"there may be no saving mystery.
;n which case all is absurd. But
then again there may be. So why
not take the risk? The other ways
lead ultimately to tragedy, and
tragedy is humanly fine and great.
Eut is' tragedy enough?"
Dr. Wilfrid Desan, a former
student' of Professor Wild's and
currently assistant professor of
Philosophy at Georgetown Uni
versity, chose to elaborate upon
ihe concept of the Western Ra
tionalist, feeling that his ex-pro
fessor had neglected this philo
"The Western Rationalist's con
cept of man lies at the basis of
Western thought and history, "Dr.
Desan explained, "and S such it
has prompted action and progress
more thin any other form of
thought on our globe."
Desan pointed out that Wild's
rejection of Western Rationalism
because "it threatens his newly
found notion of freedom," creates
a dilemma for the individual. In
this concept, the speaker queried,
"where is the objective form ac
cording to which I, as individual,
have to act?"
