I personally have no use for it. To me everything must have a direct 

human purpose, a definite human application. When the cup of human 

life is so overflowing with woe and pain and misery, it seems to me a 

narrow dilettanteism or downright charlatanism to devote one's self to 

petty or bizarre problems which can have no relation to human 

happiness, and to prate of self-satisfaction and self-expression. One 

can have all the self-expression one wants while doing useful work. 

 

And working for humanity does not exclude a healthy hedonism; not the 

narrow Cyrenaic, but an enlightened altruistic hedonism. And in 

writing this book I have kept the human problem constantly before my 

eyes. It was not my ambition merely to impart interesting facts: my 

concern was the practical application of these facts, their relation 

to human happiness. 

 

If this book should be instrumental, as I confidently trust it will, 

in destroying some medieval superstitions, in dissipating some 

hampering and cramping errors, in instilling some hope in the hearts 

of the hopeless, in bringing a little joy into the homes of the 

joyless, in increasing in however slight a degree the sum total of 

human happiness, its mission shall have been gloriously fulfilled. 

 

For this is the mission of the book: to increase the sum total of 

human happiness.
