Following this lead, we do well to think of irony. The very writing and issuance of this book was an act of irony on the part of an eminent scholar. He was playfully ironical in connecting it as he did with Thomas More. He was ironical in another way when he said that some people hope to become rich by praying to Erasmus. He was ironical in still another way when he ridiculed the foolish love of fame which keeps scholars at their labors. Suppose we now premise that Erasmus wishes to show that what is usually accepted as wisdom is not very wise.
Yet unless self-love deceives me badly, I have praised folly in a way not wholly foolish. Now to answer that other cavil, of carping, this liberty has always been permitted to men of wit, that in their jests they may poke fun at the general manners of men with impunity, so long as their license does not extend to outrage. For this reason I wonder a little at the tenderness of ears in these times, which can tolerate nothing, almost, but solemn forms of address. Yes, you will see some so perversely religious that they can endure the broadest scoffs against Christ Himself sooner than hear a pope or a prince glanced at in the most casual sort of jest-but especially if something touching revenues is [ 8 J THE PRAISE OF FOLLY involved.
Academic scepticism unfits a man for the tasks of life, which call rather for the uncritical mind and unhampered will. The answer is perhaps threefold, in part a denial with counter-charge, in part an admission, and in part an amendment. A flat denial, even in part, is the weakest of these. It is indeed true, as has been pointed out, that Socrates would make a bad member of a fire department, were he to answer a fire-call by beginning a dialogue upon whether the burning house is worth saving. Yet it is also fair to say, and needs no insistence, that practical men of undivided will often make a terrible mess of what are supposed to be practical affairs, and seem to go on making such messes either until other practical men, single-minded toward other ends, halt them, or until there is an influx of the critical spirit into some party to the situation.
