The oldest biography of Spinoza by Jean Maximilien Lucas( Book )

38 editions published between 1927 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manuscript codex, probably written between 1677 and 1678 or 1688, containing "La vie de feu Monsieur de Spinosa," Jean Maximilian Lucas' biography of the Dutch philosopher Benedictus de Spinoza, and "L'esprit de Spinosa," probably also written by Lucas According to Professor Abraham Wolf, who edited Lucas' French manuscript (the Codex Towneley), and published it with an English translation and notes in 1927 with the title "The oldest biography of Spinoza," there were a number of manuscript copies of the biography, and initially, the best was thought to be the Paris manuscript, Codex No. 2235 in the Bibliotheque de l'Arsenal. However, since then (after 1904), the present Lucas manuscript was discovered, and became known as the Towneley Codex, which Wolf believes to be older and better than any of the others. It has been attributed to de Dominique de Saint-Glain, but there is even stronger evidence that the author was Lucas, a free-thinker and apparently also a Rosicrucian. He was probably also the author of the accompanying text, L'esprit de Spinosa, which follows the Vie de Spinosa
Textbook of logic by A Wolf( Book )

57 editions published between 1930 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1930, this well-known text by the late British philosopher Abraham Wolf offers the student a practical, consistent, and comprehensive approach to logic which remains unique in its field. Dr. Wolf here deals systematically with the two main types of reasoning - formal logic and inductive logic - and their various applications. All the main elements of logic - such as inference, syllogism, dilemmas, evidence, deductive and inductive methods, and probability - are subsumed under these general headings. Professor Wolf strongly emphasizes the fact that logic cannot be mastered without some practical application; at the end of this volume, therefore, he includes a section of exercises based on each chapter. His unusally interesting appendix examines such matters as symbolic as logic, fallacies, the law of contradiction, modal propositions, the existential import of categorical propositions, predictables, and categories
