INITIATION INTO PHILOSOPHY
by \u00c9mile Faguet of the French Academy
Author of "The Cult Of Incompetence," "Initiation Into Literature," etc.
Translated from the French by Sir Homer Gordon, Bart.
This volume, as indicated by the title, is designed to show the way to the
beginner, to satisfy and more especially to excite his initial curiosity. It
affords an adequate idea of the march of facts and of ideas. The reader is
led, somewhat rapidly, from the remote origins to the most recent efforts of
the human mind.
It should be a convenient repertory to which the mind may revert in order
to see broadly the general opinion of an epoch--and what connected it with
those that followed or preceded it. It aims above all at being a frame in
which can conveniently be inscribed, in the course of further studies, new
conceptions more detailed and more thoroughly examined.
This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
