Right Reasoning

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 492), "For right reasoning there should be but one fact before the thought, namely, spiritual existence."

Everyone knows that in order to reason rightly on any subject, it is necessary to have sound premises. One of the first things the student of mathematics learns is that his reasoning must be based on mathematical truths, in order that he may solve his problems correctly. When his reasoning is in conformity with these truths, he can solve any problem, no matter how difficult it may seem to be. In the constructing of great bridges, buildings, or tunnels, the engineer knows that so long as his calculations are correct and are correctly applied, the structure will be satisfactorily completed.
