This book contains an article written by the future 28th POTUS for the Atlantic Monthly in 1897, just after he had achieved tenure as a professor at Princeton, that arguably embodies the essence of his political and personal philosophy, which is both hopeful and historical, the idea that being truly human consists of behaving humanely, that you get more accomplished with temperate, well-balanced reasonableness than with humorless single-mindedness.
