James Frederick Ferrier Selected Writings by Jennifer Keefe( )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains selections from the philosophical writings of James Frederick Ferrier (1808-1864). Ferrier was the Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of St Andrews between 1845 and 1864 and he was one of the earliest post-Hegelian British idealists. He develops a system of absolute idealism via a rejection of the Scottish school of common sense and Enlightenment philosophy in general. These selections focus on his primary philosophical interests: epistemology and ontology.
Institutes of metaphysic : the theory of knowing and being by James Frederick Ferrier( Book )
38 editions published between 1846 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In proceeding to offer a short summary of these Institutes, with the view of aiding the impartial reader to form an estimate of their scope, character, and results, the main question for consideration is, how far have they redeemed the pledges held out at their commencement,--how far have they fulfilled the requirements by which they professed themselves bound,--how far have they executed the work which they took in hand? For it is but reasonable that a science should be tested only in reference to the end which it proposes, and to the means which it employs, and not in reference to the vague expectations or inconsiderate demands of its students. A man may desire to learn astronomy from the study of anatomy; but if he does so, he cannot fail to be disappointed. So, if a man expects to derive from metaphysics information which this science does not profess to impart, the mistake will lie with the man, and not with the science. This system, then, claims the privilege of being tried only by the standard which itself has set up, and of being called to an account only for the work which it undertook to execute."
