In the several natural sciences the scope and subject-matter of each are so evident that little preliminary discussion is called for. But with psychology, however much it is freed from metaphysics, this is different. It is indeed ordinarily assumed that its subject-matter can be at once defined. It is what you can perceive by consciousness or reflection or the internal sense, says one, just as the subject.
If there be inaccuracies in this book the writer believes they are such as may be found in most if not all histories that seek the beginnings of things. The period was not of sufficient length for the forming of traditions, but nevertheless the earliest history of Pinellas comes down through stories that can be readily accepted but not proven.
And the memories of the old est residents now here do not in all matters agree.
This torian, therefore, like all others, including the greatest, has carefully studied all the material available, and has written as facts the conclusions arrived at from that study.
Most grateful acknowledgment is made of the assistance received from many sources and persons. The advisory board members have aided, officials at Wash ington, at Tallahassee, at Clearwater, and in all the cities and towns of the county, have been cordially helpful, as have the chambers of commerce and the newspaper fraternity.
Especial appreciation is due to A. Turner, the county's patriarch, and H. Hamlin, of Clearwater; to 0. Goethe, of Anclote, and to John J.
McMullen, of Largo, among the older pioneers; and to Dr. Grace Whitford, of O. Gilchrist, of Tarpon Springs; N. McKinney, of Gulfport, and Mrs. Smith, Aloysius Coli, and Mrs. Petersburg, among those in the active life of the present time.
Petersburg, Florida, Aprill, If we in this Christian age could allow ourselves to believe that not one, but a hundred gods made the world, we would know all of the dynamic deities had conferred to make this spot of beauty the composite touchstone of their dreams. The god of the sun said: And the wizardry of their dreams fell over the sands and the dunes of the little spike of land that had sprouted from the breast of the mother peninsula.
The spike became a stem, and the stem took leaf in the oak and the lily, the maple and the waving palm The coral began to work in the bottom of the bordering seas.
Their airy castles grew and grew. Shell and sand filled the watery battlements-tiny islands began to peep up from the rippled wafers. Birds began to drop tiny seeds in the moving sands. The mango and the palm had a new garden. And now, in the yearthere and here stands the work of the godly hands, the flowering peninsula of Pinellas, with her cluster of green islands and keys, like gorgeous strings of emerald and jade, sweeping over the master-pattern of divine dreams.
Pinellas peninsula with its islands has an area of square miles. It is at that another archipelago of the south seas, for no one has ever yet accurately counted the little islands and keys that dimple the blue waters with crests of green.
Engineers have plotted many of them, but when airplane pictures were made for official geographical records, dozens of little islands were shown to have builded up from the waters, some of them not yet touched by the foot of man.
Of these square miles are in the mainland. This mainland; however, is so indented and so rich in bayous, inlets, c: When to this matchless attrac tion is added a sunshine known throughout the world, a natural rainfall of 52 inches a year and distributed over twelve months with the heavy precipitation through the summer when it is desired and withheld in the winter when it is not needed, one readily has gaind the foundation for the charm of the col nty, the smallest in the state, and the richest per acre.
Petersburg boundaries, on the mainland, and to the famous littl e city, Pass-a-Grille, set like a diamond point at the extreme southern limits of Long Key, which extends north and south west of St. Petersburg and which forms part of that chain of major keys which extends all the way from Tarpon Springs to Tampa bay, and in the form of islands and keys borders the whole coast of Florida to Key West.
Pinellas county is less than 1 5 miles across at its widest swell of the mainland formation. No point in the mainland is more than 5 miles from salt-water, and in a terrain such as that of the county, this means that no inhabitant of the county is more than a few minutes from a swim in the surf or bay, a beac h party or the finest fishing in the world.Speculations Journal (1) Cargado por Tomas Čiučelis.

Hume (Providence and a Future State) contends that Atheism has no evil tendency with regard to the moral or political conduct of men—that we can infer nothing of God beyond what this world testifies—and that the laws of this world render conduct morally and politically good our interest.—Bacon, Essay on Superstition, denies that Atheism.
First category: “Consciousness and Its Objects” Adler deals with the mistakes of Locke, Descartes, Hume, and Kant, skepticism, solipsism, and subjectivism.
In dealing with our ability to use our minds, these philosophers made the gross mistake of driving too deep a wedge between our minds and the outside world. The object of his philosophy is the spiritualization of the natural world. New Hyde Park. The astral body is said to be a nonsolid duplicate of the physical body.
Representation as an essential aspect of the world strikes us first as we begin to treat the world as a philosophical problem but only a deeper reflection reveals that the world is a phenomenon of one’s will. necessary and inseparable halves of the world as representation.
The development of new courses is a natural consequence of a high level of excitement on the research frontier as newer techniques, such as nume- cal and symbolic computer systems, dynamical systems, and chaos, mix with and reinforce the traditional methods of applied mathematics.
