"Whether wo can hold the moral
nature accountable for the decisions
of the intellect, or whether they
must be kept strictly npnrt in all our
estimates, is n subject on which
there tiro ninny vngue and confused
ideas. How far men are responsible
for their opinions whether guilt i9
necessarily attached to the holding
of error, and merit to the holding of
truth, are questions which receive
various nnswers, according to the
standpoint from which thoy arc
viewed. It is, however, important
to obtain as clear ideas as possible
upon this point, both for one's own
self-guidance and for the estimates
that he may be continually forming
of his neighbors. If there is such a.
thing as intellectual virtue, he ought
to know how to cultivate it in him
self and to recognize it in others.
Abstractly there is neither mora
lity nor immorality in an intelligent
belief. If any one strenuously as
serted that two and two made five,
or that the earth never moved, we
might doubt his sanity, but could
not, therefore, impugn his morality.
The many mistakes continually made
in scientific and historical researches,
and in political and social methods,
may indicate every shade of defec
tive judgment, but arc no evidence
of guilt. As a well-known writer
observes, "it is as unmeaning to
speak of the immorality of an in
tellectual mistake, as it would be to
talk of the color of a sound."
If, however, wo proceed to assume
that there is no such thing as intel
lectual virtue or vice, that no re
sponsibility attaches to the views
we embrace or the opinions we form ;
that wc are equally worthy whether
we hold to truth or error, wo shall
draw a false and fatal conclusion.
Though an opinion in itself may not
be either blameworthy or praise
worthy, much that is either one or
the other may have contributed to
form that opinion. Behind all our
beliefs and notions on every subject
lies character, and in that arc hid
den the secrets of righteousness and
iniquity. It is in the path that has
led up to our opinions that we must
find moral goodness or demerit. The
pure love of truth should be our
guide. Have wc followed its lead
ings, accepted its laborious ascents
and thorny passages, resisted all
allurements on the right hand and
the left, and thus honestly and
faithfully arrived at our convictions?
Or have we rather consulted our
material interests, our love of case,
our desire for certainty, the dictum
of our party or our social circle,
and adopted the views most in con
sonance with these results? Upon
the answers to such inquiries depend
the virtue or vice of intellectual
opinions, and it is just here that we
can only answer for ourselves and
not for our neighbors. "Vc ought
not to judge other people by their
beliefs, because wc do notkuow how
they have been brought about, but
wc may justly apply the crucial test
to our own views, and honor or dis
honor them accordingly.
The very same may be held worthi
ly by one man, and unworthily by
another; while on the other hand
quite different conclusions may be
reached by two persons who have
both honestly done their best in the
search. Every political party, every
reform movement, every set of peo
ple who combine to conduct any
enterprise, or antagonize any evil,
counts many classes among its dis
ciples. There are those in its num
ber (and they arc the vital force of
the undertaking), who have embrac
ed the principle that lies at the
foundation with their whole strength
of mind and fervor of soul. They
have put aside prejudice and partial
ity, and have sincerely and thought
fully worked out the ideas which
animate the brotherhood into which
they enter. Others there arc who
have simply yielded to circumstances
and passively adopted the standards
held out to them ; while still others
aro in the ranks only for purposes of
self-interest, swayed by the hopo of
gain or fame, or popularity or sta
tion. All have the same watchword
on their lips, all unfurl the same
banner, but what different degrees
of intellectual morality and immoral
ity aro there enshrined !
Then, again, there arc men in
opposite parties, holding views at
utter variance, yet both having tho
same great interests at heart and
both earnestly desiring to discover
the true methods of promoting those
interests. Perhaps one is for protec
tion and the other for free trade, or
one is for prohibition and tho other
for license, or one clings pcitinn
ciously to the old order of things and
the other espouses the new. Both
desire the good of the community,
both have Been and earnestly cm
braced certain truths and arc willing
to labor and suffer for them j and
yet, instead of honoring each other
for the intcllectunl virtue thus shown,
they more commonly upbraid and
assail each other, becauso each sees
from u different standpoint and
chooses a different method. Wo
have yet to learn how much larger
find further reaching is truth than
arc our limited powers of vision to
perceive her. Each of us may have
discovered a small part, and If wo
have pursued it with untiling zeal,
even to unwelcome results, aud havo
given up for it inclination, case,
pleasure or preconceived ideas, wo
aro loyal to the truth, trKiugh much
of it may remain unfolded ; but let
us not "doubt tho same loyalty in
others because they emphasizo what
we do not sec, or because they rely
on methods that do not appeal to us.
Truth is iullnitc, and wc ennnot clasp
it in our Unite arms, yet wc mny live
in its light, and learn inoro and more
of its grand meaning if we but sin
cerely, honestly and patiently tread
thestraightroad of intellectual virtue.
