"Idealism conceives the self primarily as reason and reason primarily as God." "It is the unvarying tendency of idealistic thought thus to translate the Christian moral [Page 2] paradox who loseth his life will find it into an one to claim that true selfhood antalogical [anthological?] one and to claim true individuality are something quite other than actual selfhood and individuality."
