MR. OTTO SIEPMANN
The Rt. Hon. Lord EUSTACE PERCY
LAST week Lord Eustace Percy considered how much use it is patching up compromises in the present state of political affairs. The other possible solution is to react violently against the politics of rigidity and compromise ; and that is what Communism and Fascism have done. The question is whether dictatorships of this kind offer a real prospect of a fresh start. Have wo anything to learn from them ? These experiments have one feature in common : the conception that citizenship involves definite sacrifices. This conception, if revived, might perhaps mean abandoning the British tradition of representative government. This last point forms the subject of Lord Eustace Percy 's last talk in this series next week.

Mr. G. Lowes DICKINSON
MR. LOWES DICKINSON is a practised hand at rounding off such series as this ; largely because he is not to any great extent a specialigt in any particular branch of knowledge, and has no particular propagandist axe to grind. Ho has definite enough opinions of his own: but he is, like all great men, sufficiently diffident about them to be ready to admit that there may be at least a grain of truth in those of others. In the opening talk of the first ' Points of View ' series-the speakers in which, incidentally, included two others of the current symposiasts— Mr. Dickinson said that the result of having devoted much of his time to the understanding and expression of other people's points of view was that he had finally arrived at views of his own. His studies of Goethe are a good example of this; as Napoleon said to him, Goethe was ' a man, ' in the sense of living a life as complete as any human being has ever done. Mr. Dickinson has certainly been influenced enormously by Goethe, and has retained that poet-critic-philosopher's wide sympathies and interests. He is not a highbrow, in the ordinary somewhat derogatory sense of the word; but he thinks deeply and seriously about serious and important matters. Such an attitude is ideal for welding together a series such as this, in which a heterogeneous collection of eminent representatives of every kind of view-point and creed have united to express their views on the present state of the world, and how it eould be improved. While agreeing on many points, these speakers have differed widely on others ; it will be particularly interesting to have the agreements noticed and the disagreements arbitrated by Mr. Lowes Dickinson's vigorous and penetrating mind.
