The Senses and the Intellect

Přední strana obálky
Longmans, Green, 1868 - Počet stran: 696
"The object of this treatise is to give a full and systematic account of two principal divisions of the science of mind, -the Senses and the Intellect. While endeavouring to present in a methodical form all the important facts and doctrines bearing upon mind, considered as a branch of science, I have seen reason to adopt some new views, and to depart, in a few instances, from the most usual arrangement of the topics"--Book.
