I (Just after publication): The novelty is absurd
and subversive of Religion and Morality.
The propounder both fool and knave.
II (Twenty years later): The Novelty is absolute Truth
and will yield a full and satisfactory

The propounder a man of sublime genius and perfect virtue.

things in general after all, and therefore is a wretched failure.
The propounder a very ordinary person advertised by a clique.

in spite of his share of human frailties,
as one who has added to the permanent possessions of science.
