Abstract

tone, the standard of men and women reasoning together, was established, and also—even more important—the idea and fact that things happened because of these discussions. This was a place of decision, not “just talk.” When international topics finally came up, they came up within that atmosphere. At first they were all American in personnel, but soon it became evident that students and officials of other nations had to be brought in, if only for ready factual information and for statements of policy, and so they were.

There were also a series of official conferences in something of the old manner, but even these were influenced by the manner and by what was said on the round table. Then there was the general context and the chief means by which the military metaphysics was replaced by an industrial view of the world problem; by which the permanent peace economy
