PRE FACE

THROUGHOUT the course of the years that have elapsed since the publication of a small volume, “Elements of Thought,” I have held in view the purpose of following it by another on the same subjects, but treated more at large. A time of absolute leisure, fitted for the due performance of such a task, I have waited for and never found.

Yet, in place of a continuous season of leisure, there has been given me the leisure moments and the hours of many thoughtful years. During these years the principal subjects of Intellectual Philosophy have been constantly in my prospect, and the volume which is now offered to the public is the fruit of these meditations in this lapse of time.

Intending to put into the reader's hand an elementary book of moderate size, such subjects only are introduced as might be presented apart from controversial references to books, either of the present time or of times past. Any such references, to be serviceable to the uninitiated reader, must be ample and comprehensive, and would demand space very far exceeding that to which I have here confined myself.
