Examen de ingenios, or, The tryal of wits : discovering the great difference of wits among men, and what sort of learning suits best with each genius by Juan Huarte( Book )

17 editions published between 1678 and 1987 in English and Latin and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This books is an English translation of the Examen de Ingenios, originally published in Spanish. All the Ancient Philosophers have found by Experience, that where Nature disposes not a Man for Knowledge, it is in vain for him to labour in the Rules of the Art. But not one of them has clearly and distinctly declared what that Nature is, which renders a Man fit for one, and unfit for another Science, nor what difference of Wit is observed among Men, nor what Arts and Sciences are most suitable to each Man in particular, nor by what Marks they may be discerned, which is of the greatest Importance. These four Points (though seemingly impossible) are contained in the Matter here treated of, besides many other that by the by fall in with this Doctrine, to the intent that curious Fathers may learn the Art and Secret of discovering Wit in their Children, and know how to apply to each the Science in which he shall molt Excel"--Book.

This is the America to which Julian West, a young Bostonian, awakens after more than a century of sleep. West's initial sense of wonder, his gradual acceptance of the new order and a new love, and Bellamy's wonderful prophetic inventions-electric lighting, shopping malls, credit cards, electronic broadcasting-ensured the mass popularity of this 1888 novel. But however rich in fantasy and romance, Looking Backward is a passionate attack on the social ills of nineteenth-century industrialism and a plea for social reform and moral renewal. In her introduction, Cecelia Tichi discusses how the novel echoes the anguish and hopes of its own age while it embodies a sustaining myth of the American literary tradition-that man's perfectibility is attainable in the New World

Examen de ingenios. The examination of men's wits (1594) by Juan Huarte( Book )

4 editions published between 1698 and 1734 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Juan Huarte de San Juan (1529-1588) was a Spanish physician and natural philosopher who strove to answer why men possess specific natural abilities that prepare them to excel only in particular fields of knowledge. With his treatise Examen de ingenios par las ciencias (Baeza, 1575), dedicated to King Philip II, Huarte hoped to form a body of naturally accomplished professionals by providing readers with clues to identify their leading wit and the career path associated with it. The book experienced such overwhelming success in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries - it underwent fifty-five editions in six different languages - that it is now considered one of the most influential Spanish scientific books of the early modern period. The present edition modernizes the text of Richard Carews The Examination of Men's Wits (London, 1594), the first rendering into English of Huartes work - via a previous Italian translation. In addition, the Introduction contextualizes both the Spanish and the English texts and their authors, discusses the censorship imposed by the Inquisition, the (often deliberate) textual divergences of the English translation, the multiple translations and editions the book underwent in early modern Europe, and its domestic and European reception, with a focus on the English scientific, educational and literary arenas. William Camden, John Marston, Ben Jonson and Sir Francis Bacon are some of the household names acquainted with Huartes theories, thanks to Richard Carews widely read English version."--Page 4 of cover
Looking backward by Edward Bellamy( Book )

First published in 1888, Looking Backward was one of the most popular novels of its day. Translated into more than 20 languages, its utopian fantasy influenced such thinkers as John Dewey, Thorstein Veblen, Eugene V. Debs, and Norman Thomas. Writing from a 19th century perspective and poignantly critical of his own time, Bellamy advanced a remarkable vision of the future, including such daring predictions as the existence of radio, television, motion pictures, credit cards, and covered pedestrian malls. On the surface, the novel is the story of time-traveler Julian West, a young Bostonian who is put into a hypnotic sleep in the late 19th century, and awakens in the year 2000 in a socialist utopia. In conversations with the doctor who awakened him, he discovers a brilliantly realized vision of an ideal future, one that seemed unthinkable in his own century. Crime, war, personal animosity, and want are nonexistent. Equality of the sexes is a fact of life. In short, a messianic state of brotherly love is in effect. Entertaining, stimulating, and thought-provoking, Looking Backward, with its ingenious plot and appealing socialism, is a provocative study of human society as it is and as it might be

'For example?' I queried. 'I don't suppose there is much use in trying to explain my trouble,' she said. 'You will only think me stupid for my pains, but I'll try to make you see what I mean. You ought to be able to clear up the matter if anybody can. You have just been telling me about the shockingly unequal conditions of the people, the contrasts of waste and want, the pride and power of the rich, the abjectness and servitude of the poor, and all the rest of the dreadful story.' 'Yes.' 'It appears that these contrasts were almost as great as at any previous.'
