Course of the history of modern philosophy by Victor Cousin( Book )

24 editions published between 1852 and 1889 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"M. Cousin's Course of the history of modern philosophy is here, for the first time entire, presented to the English reader. It consists of Lectures delivered at Paris in the years 1828-9. This second series of Lectures contains a full exposition of Cousin's system. It is, in fact, his great philosophical work, and has received his last revision and correction. Whoever, either for the purpose of propagating it or resisting its influence, wishes to make himself acquainted with Eclecticism, which is fast becoming the dominant philosophy of the nineteenth century, will do well to study this production of its founder and ablest teacher. The first volume contains a luminous summary of Cousin's views in regard to humanity and history. The connected account of the second volume gives of the history of philosophy from the earliest times; the distinct classification it makes of systems; the brief, yet intelligible, glimpses it affords into the interior of almost every school, whether ancient or modern, together with the detailed analysis of Locke"--Préface.

The thoughts, letters, and opuscules of Blaise Pascal by Blaise Pascal( Book )

23 editions published between 1859 and 1893 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains: 1st, an account of the "Various Editions of Pascal's Thoughts;" 2d, an essay on the "Genius and Writings of Pascal;" 3d, "Pascal considered as a Philosophic Skeptic;" 4th, the "Thoughts of Pascal;" 5th, the "Letters of Pascal;" and 6th, the "Opuscules of Pascal." We take leave of Pascal with regret. Many holy hours we have spent in his company, and have thanked the Omniscient for such a revelation in man of moral and intellectual force. We regard Pascal not only as the greatest genius but as the holiest man that France has produced. To the young men of America we commend a writer in whom greatness and rectitude of mind were combined in an equal degree"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

"This is the second volume of M. Cousin's "Course of the History of Modern Philosophy." The first volume (see record 2008-07477-000) contains a summary of Cousin's views in regard to humanity and history. The course which comprises the last two volumes of this series gives the history of philosophy from the earliest times; the distinct classification it makes of systems; the brief, yet intelligible, glimpses it affords into the interior of every school, whether ancient or modern, together with the detailed analysis of Locke: in a word, the singular union of the more sober criticism of the psychological school, with occasional flights into the higher regions of metaphysical analysis, all concur."
