Philosophers and Artists of the Age.  Rhapsody and frigidity, burning desires and waning of the heart's glow — this wretched medley is to be found in the picture of the highest European society of the present day.  There the artist thinks that he is achieving a great deal when through his art he lights the torch of the heart as well as the torch of desire.  The philosopher has the same notion, when in the chilliness of his heart, which he has in common with his age, he cools hot desires in himself and his following by his world denying judgments.
