THE materials which the author had prepared for this book were found greatly to exceed the limits assigned to it. He has therefore, besides other parts of his plan to which special reference need not here be made, been compelled to leave out the account of Spinoza's life and letters, and to confine the work to an examination of his philosophical system. This is the less to be regretted that the life has been so fully narrated in the recent works of Mr Pollock and Dr Martineau. These works contain, also, very able and elaborate expositions of the Spinozistic philosophy, but this book attempts to deal with that philosophy from a point of view different from that of either of these writers.

by Carl Ginet - D. Reidel Publishing Co.
This book attempts a general definition of what it is to know that a thing is so. It gives accounts of the knowledge based on perception and that based on memory. Regarding the justification of claims to know, it takes a fundamentalist approach.
by John Stuart Mill - D. Appleton
Mill's major work in moral and political philosophy provides an account of his views on many important topics: socialism, population, the status of women, the cultural bases of economic productivity, the causes and possible cures of poverty, etc.
by Olaf Stapledon
What am I? Am I free or a machine? Is there a God? What is good, anyhow? What ought we to do with our lives? What is life all about? A man's first approach to philosophy is often due to the hope of finding clear answers to such questions.
