It was something entirely given, which was valuable in its existence, in its connection, in its unity, in its beauty. But that which is to be valuable for its development's sake gains the value just in its transition from the given to the not-given. It is not being, but becoming. Experience alone is not sufficient there; the deed is needed. As soon as the deed is performed, the development completed, we have again only something which is finished, and as such it can again claim only the value of connection, no longer the special value of development. Such becoming may go on in the outer world, in the fellow-world, and in the inner world, and the inner forming may be absolutely valuable even where the deed is done without any conscious evaluation. On the other hand, the valuable deed may subordinate itself to a conscious purpose; it then becomes an achievement. Such purposive intentional realization of values meant to us civilization. Hence the values of achievement are values of civilization; the values of development are immediate values of life. Both belong intimately together. Civilization carries on in the values of achievement what is enclosed in the values of development in naive experience. Thus they are related to each other like the values of existence and of connection, or the values of unity and of beauty.
