George Perrigo Conger
The purpose of this monograph is to trace throughout the history of philosophy the motivations, contents and effects of a number of views which may be grouped under the title “Theories of Macrocosms and Microcosms”. According to these theories, portions of the world which vary in size exhibit similarities in structures and processes, indicating that one portion imitates another orothers on a different scale. Most prominent among the theories are those to the effect that man is a microcosm, or “little world”, in one way or another epitomizing a macrocosm, or “great world”, the universe, or some part thereof. At the outset it should be noted that the definition of the field of investigation is a matter of some difficulty – one is likely to conceive it in terms either too inclusive or too restricted.
