In the struggle to get into right relation with the universe, there are for Ruskin two opposite and yet related errors: the first "that of caring for man only; and for the rest of universe, little or not at all"; the other, "that of caring for the universe only; - for man, not at all." It is the second, he says, which "in a measure, is the error of modern science." It is the error of modern art too, if we lose trust in ourselves and our place in the universe.
