ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "The Public Philosophy," by Walter Lippmann. This deep-rooted disagreement might indicate a similar disaccord among Americans, not only over the solutions but also about the nature of the problems to which the solutions were directed. The confusions of each seemed to the author to run deep. That they were reflected in society at large was probable. It might be worth trying to disentangle and to present them. Lippmann's rejoinder indicates an irritation not unnatural under the circumstances, but he addresses himself good-humoredly to his critic's enthusiastic oversimplification.
