Summary
"As its title suggests, this book addresses certain problems of Life and Mind. When the author organized this book, he originally intended it to be a series of essays related to those two subjects. But, he says, out of this series arose two results, little contemplated. In the author's own words, "the first result was such a mutual illumination from the various principles arrived at separately that I began to feel confident of having something like a clear vision of the fundamental inductions necessary to the constitution of Psychology; hence, although I do not propose to write a complete treatise, I hope to establish a firm groundwork for future labors. The second result, which was independent of the first, arose thus: Finding the exposition obstructed by the existence of unsolved metaphysical problems, and by the too frequent employment of the metaphysical Method, and knowing that there was no chance of general recognition of the scientific Method and its inductions while the rival Method was tolerated, and the conceptions of Force, Cause, Matter, Mind, were vacillating and contradictory, I imagined that it would be practicable in an introductory chapter, not indeed to clear the path of these obstacles, but at least to give such precise indications of the principles adopted throughout the exposition as would enable the reader to follow it untroubled by metaphysical difficulties. That introductory chapter has grown insensibly into a substantive work; and the two volumes of which it consists are but a portion of what has been written. Not only has the chapter grown into a work, the work itself has grown into a systematic introduction to the philosophy of Science; and what was intended merely as a preparation for a Psychology discloses itself as the Foundations of a Creed. This brief sketch of its history may not only explain and partly justify the somewhat ambitious pretensions of this work, it will also explain and partly justify certain defects in its composition"--Preface.
