"For although we are as yet too near to the work of our own time to be able to make categorical judgments about it, we may nevertheless be confident that when the dross has been purged away (and there is plenty of it), the art of to-day will be found within the perspectives of history to be neither more nor less inglorious than the contribution of any other period. Without partiality and without prejudice, Eidos therefore takes the whole world of painting, sculpture and design, ancient and modern, eastern and western, for its province and would seek in principle to serve them all."--No. 1, page 3.
