Creativity and Order

  • Dorothy Emmet


To be is no other than to be one. In so far therefore as anything attains unity, in so far it is. For unity worketh congruity and harmony, whereby things composite are, in so far as they are: for things uncompounded are in themselves, because they are one ; but things compounded imitate unity by the harmony of their parts, and so far as they attain to unity, they are. Wherefore order and rule secure being, disorder tends to not-being.— ST. Augustine.
