Historical and critical dictionary : selections by Pierre Bayle( Book )

3 editions published in 1720 in French and English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pierre Bayle was one of the most important sceptical thinkers of the seventeenth century. His work was a major influence on the development of the ideas of Voltaire, Hume, Montesquieu and Rousseau. Sally L. Jenkinson's new edition presents the reader with a coherent path through Bayle's monumental work. This is the first volume in English to select political writings from Bayle's work and to present its author as a specifically political thinker. Sally L. Jenkinson's translation will be welcomed by scholars and students of the history of ideas, political theory, cultural history and French studies."--Jacket

2 editions published between 1792 and 1794 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Bartram (1739-1823) was the first native-born American artist-naturalist. He set off in March, 1773, from Philadelphia for Georgia and Florida where he collected objects and supplied various patrons in England with illustrations of American plants and animals. Bartram's published record of this journey is not merely a technical work, but an intensely poetic one, and is the most important and beautiful description of the southeastern United States during the 18th century. William returned to Philadelphia in 1777 where he spent the rest of his long life, making botanical drawings

Philosophical essays on various subjects : with some remarks on Mr. Locke's Essay on the human understanding : 1742 by Isaac Watts( Book )

2 editions published in 1742 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The subjects treated in the first essays, space, substance, body and spirit, have no inconsiderable influence in adjusting our ideas of God and Creatures, animate and inanimate beings. Body and spirit are the two only proper substances that we know of, and if their distinct essences can be limited and adjusted in clear ideas, it will be a happy clew to lead us into some further knowledge of the visible and invisible world, and will give us a more particular and distinct acquaintance with human nature, which is compounded of matter and mind. Also included are remarks on Mr. Locke's Essay on the Human Understanding and a brief scheme of ontology"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
