False Renown.  I hate those so called natural beauties which really have significance only through science, especially geographical science, but are insignificant in an aesthetic sense: for example, the view of Mont Blanc from Geneva.  This is an insignificant thing without the auxiliary mental joy o; science: the nearer mountains are all more beautiful and fuller of expression, but "not nearly so high” adds that absurd depreciatory science.  The eye here contradicts science: how can it truly rejoice in the contradiction?
