Chapter Summary

Among human associations one finds three kinds that are especially praiseworthy, useful, and pleasant. The first and least of these deals with the business of this life, chiefly with external conditions. The second and greatest concerns itself with the care of the human soul and its greatest happiness. The third, midway between, is engaged in the study of arts and letters and promotes their fruitful productivity and progress. These kinds of associations are worthy of more careful consideration, for human nature, which by itself is somewhat slow to advance, is often aroused and stimulated to virtue by them. This chapter describes the excellent purpose of this most noble society and the incomparable dignity of the Hebrew language. Hebrew was the only language in use for as long as the earth had a single tongue until that famous dispersion of all peoples.

Keywords: Hebrew language; human soul
