Previous Section   9. "NATURAL LAW” A PHRASE OF SUPERSTITION   Next Section

"Natural Law” a Phrase of Superstition.  When you talk so delightedly of Nature acting according to law, you must either assume that all things in Nature follow their law from a voluntary obedience imposed by themselves — in which case you admire the morality of Nature: or you are enchanted with the idea of a creative mechanician, who has made a most cunning watch with human beings as accessory ornaments.  Necessity, through the expression, "conformity to law” then becomes more human and a coign of refuge in the last instance for mythological reveries.
