ages men would associate with each other in comniunities and nations. Nature did not overlook the twelve social organs in the brain through which this result has been made a perpetual necessity. And nature did not fail to provide inherent laws for these organs of the brain, just as she did for the eye, the ear, the lungs, and all other organs. We cannot invent or make laws for seeing, or hearing, or breathing. Neither can we make nor invent true laws for the social faculties, for the collective action and institutions among men.
But we may discover and apply these laws. We may supply them with good conditions for their higher and more perfect action, and we may write these laws down in clear statements so that they shall become the common basis of agreement and collective activities.
"SOCIAL STATICS ' should describe natural in
stitutions, and " social dynamics " should describe the natural and therefore normal actions of society. If man's faculties did not remain permanently the same, then these two branches of sociology could not be developed and would never reach a practical form.
No legislative or other lawmaking bodies are required in the new social order. Instead of these, we have the deparments of science. The work of discovering, formulating and applying the natural social laws is done in these departments and those of culture. In any case where the required natural law is not known, then temporary expedients may be adopted until the natural law can be discovered.
Discoveries and inventions are made by members who are in various departments of employment,
