Reseña del editor


The Genius of the Gael is the subject proposed for study in this little book. The first chapter deals with the composite Irish people of to-day and their character as resting largely on kinship and foster - kinship with the Gael.

The last chapter is a study of that educative influence, here called the Gaelic Ethos, by which a race of people may be said to foster — in the spiritual sense — the strangers cast upon their shores. The second chapter deals with the main thesis: it is an imperfect but faithful attempt to analyse the psychology of the Celt as one of many Varieties in human kindred. The Gael is distinguished from the Celt as the species best known in Ireland, and for the most part it is the Celt as Gael who is under consideration in these pages.

The method of procedure is: (1) to study the Gael through his manifestations in Irish character as we know it to-day, noting the influences under which that character has evolved historically, and keeping in view the characteristics of other peoples in whom also the Celtic element is presumably strong; (2) to show how the observed characteristics of Irishmen, in so far as they differ from others, may be explained by the prevalence in them of a certain psychological variety, structural, or functional, or temperamental, which is the fundamental quality of the Celtic mind. The effects of this quality are traced through its outward manifestations in social genius, political ability, development of institutions, literature, religion. Each of these is the topic of a separate chapter.
