Maurice Blondel's Pan-Christie vision encompassed. the whole of his spiritual life and permeated. all his works. He initiated his academic vocation by involving his whole being in his work and by making of his philosophy a lived experience. He expressed. this wish in his Carnets Intimes, March 6, 1884, "...if this notebook could, later on, be the rallying point, the passage, the link, the identification of my practical life to my speculative life, of my thought and action!" He was yet a very young man when he determined. to make of his writings "not a theory but an action."
