Throughout history, unifying threads between disparate groups have allowed for and supported progress. From the first families that banded together to form more efficient hunting parties to current trade agreements and multinational defense pacts, without the things that have brought societies together, progress in science, government, religion, health, and other areas would have been impossible, or at least severely curtailed.
Keep in mind that these essays/lectures were given during World War I, and you'll see some of the initiative behind putting together such a collection. A world torn apart by war, millions of dead on all sides of the conflict, the use of horrific chemical weapons...it was clear that people needed a reminder of just how much better we all are when we work together. (Sadly, a lot of people missed the memo.)
But these essays are just as pertinent today as they were nearly 100 years ago, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a deeper understanding of where we've come from, how we got here, and how we need to work together to move forward.
