There is no significance to the sound and fury of life…unless something is being affirmed…It must be apparent that logic depends on the dream, and not the dream upon logic. We must admit this when we realize the logical processes rest ultimately on classification, that classification is by identification, and that identification is intuitive. It follow then that a waning of the dream results in confusion of counsel…Whether we describe this as a decay of religion or loss of interest in metaphysics, the result is the same; for both are centers with power to integrate, and if they give way, there begins a dispersion which never ends until the culture lies in fragments.–Richard M. Wright, Ideas Have Consequences, pp.20-21
