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

3 editions published in 1720 in French and English and held by 298 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
Philosophical essays on various subjects, viz., space, substance, body, spirit, the operations of the soul in union with the body ... with some remarks on Mr. Lockeʹs Essay on the human understanding. To which is subjoined a brief scheme of ontology, or the science of being in general, with its affections by Isaac Watts( )

2 editions published in 1742 in English and held by 221 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)
