e77 ON THE CORRUPTION OF HUMAN NATURE. THE most original French writer of our own time, but who employed his powerful talents to the most pernicious purposes, abruptly begins his once popular work on education with this undeniable truth, All is good as it comes out of the hands of God ; all is corrupted in the hands of man." In his first position, this sceptic bears a just testimony to the goodness of his Creator ; but the second clause, his sub- sequent application of it, though also a truth, is not the whole truth. He as- cribes all the evils of man to the errors of his institution.
