"If I am not mistaken, we mean nowadays by intelligence, what was formerly called understanding or intellect-that is to say, the faculty of knowing; this, at least, is the sense in which I have taken the word. Such is the method it has been attempted to follow in this work. In the first part, the elements of knowledge have been determined; by consecutive reductions we have arrived at the most simple elements, and have passed from these to the physiological changes which are the condition of their origin. In the second part, we have first described the mechanism and general effect of their combination; then, applying the law we have discovered, we have examined the elements, formation, certitude, and range of the principal kinds of our knowledge, from that of individual things to that of general things, from the most special perceptions, previsions, and recollections, up to the most universal judgments and axioms"--Preface.

27 editions published between 1878 and 2006 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hippolyte Taine's The French Revolution, which is written from the viewpoint of conservative French opinion, is a unique and important contribution to revolutionary historiography. Taine condemns the radicals of the French Revolution, unhesitatingly contradicting the rosy, Rousseauesque view of the Revolution. Taine approached the Revolution in the same way that a medical doctor approaches a disease. Indeed, he described his work not so much as a history as a "pathology" of the Revolution. His method constitutes his principal contribution to study of the subject. This method began with an examination, not of the French, but of the English. As Professor Mona Ozouf observes, Taine "maintained [that] the history of the Revolution depended on the definition of the French spirit." He had, in an earlier account of English literature, defined "a unique explanatory principle" for investigation of the contrasting societies of the French and the English. This principle among the English, he reported, is "the sense of liberty," or what he described as the English conviction that "man, having conceived alone in his conscience and before God the rules of his conduct, is above all a free, moral person." In contrast to the English ability to conserve and even to expand liberty through gradual adaptation to changing circumstances, Taine identified a "French spirit" that became, Ozouf emphasizes, "his central explanation of the French revolutionary phenomenon." This phenomenon explained, Taine argued, why France "had demolished its national community well before the Revolution"--Thus making the Revolution not only inevitable, but also inevitably terrible. - Publisher
