Irving Babbitt’s ON BEING CREATIVE (Full Book)


Illustration borrowed from The American Conservative.  Babbitt and the world.

This was Babbitt’s last published book, ON BEING CREATIVE.  It came out in 1932, and he passed away in the summer of the following year.  As such, it reveals much about the great man’s last thoughts regarding a term he rarely employed but had always embraced, “humanism.”

Enjoy.  A true delight.
