Summary
"A book on intellectual philosophy, should not only furnish lessons, but elicit inquiry, excite the reasoning powers, enkindle original thought, and guide to well-formed independent conclusions. Dogmatism, always odious, is particularly so upon a subject of this nature. He who sets our minds upon a track of successful inquiry, does a more valuable service than he who puts authoritatively forth the stereotype lessons of the schools. All who have had valuable experience in teaching, will agree, also, that a great book is ordinarily a great evil. A text-book, especially, should be mostly filled with "the seeds of things." These thoughts have been much in my mind, while preparing the following pages;--to what effect, others must judge. Briefly to exhibit the most important principles of intellectual philosophy, as acknowledged by the best authorities, in language as plain and free from technicalities as possible; to elicit free inquiry, and give reasons for differing from others, in cases of dissent; to show wherein the human powers transcend those of the animal, and to point out their relations to Christianity; to trace the mental phenomena, so far as present science conducts, to their physical source; finally, to adapt the subject both to the popular and the educated mind, --are the leading objects of this volume"--Introduction.
