Thoughts by Blaise Pascal( Book )

Lectures on the true, the beautiful, and the good by Victor Cousin( Book )

51 editions published between 1854 and 2011 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explains that the eighteen lectures that compose this volume have in fact the particular trait that they present a regular exposition of the doctrine which was at first fixed in our mind, which has not ceased to preside over our labors. This book, then, contains the abridged but exact expression of our convictions on the fundamental points of philosophic science. In it will be openly seen the method that is the soul of our enterprise, our principles, our processes, our results. Under these three heads, the True, the Beautiful, the Good, we embrace psychology, placed by us at the head of all philosophy, aesthetics, ethics, natural right, even public right to a certain extent, finally theodicea, that perilous rendezvous of all systems, where different principles are condemned or justified by their consequences. It is the affair of our book to plead its own cause. We only desire that it may be appreciated and judged according to what it really is, and not according to an opinion too much accredited. We declare that eclecticism is very dear to us, for it is in our eyes the height of the history of philosophy; but the source of that light is elsewhere. Eclecticism is one of the most important and most useful applications of the philosophy which we teach, but it is not its principle. Our true doctrine, our true flag is spiritualism, that philosophy as solid as generous, which began with Socrates and Plato, which the Gospel has spread abroad in the world, and which Descartes put under the severe forms of modern genius. May our voice be heard by new generations as it was by the serious youth of the Restoration!"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
Course of the history of modern philosophy by Victor Cousin( Book )

24 editions published between 1852 and 1889 in English and held by 289 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"--Preface.

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

24 editions published between 1859 and 1893 in English and held by 182 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)
