JOHN STUART MILL.

A STUDY OF HIS PHILOSOPHY,

Crown Sro, ás 02. wet

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. - A study at once sympathetic and critical car Mill's philosophy, in which the author does justice to its lofty ethical inspiration." Tlmar

* A singularly keen and attractive study of John Stuart Mill and the ideas which lie at the basis of his intellectual prasition....... A rigorous and suggestive book."-Speaker.

“This is decidedly the best book which has yet been written on JS Mill. It is critical, but the criticism is of the very best kind. Fallacies and inconsistencies are dwelt on, not so much for their own sake, as in order to bring out the permanent and valuable fruits with which they are associated and contrasted."- Mind.

“Dr Douglas has furnished students of philosophy with an able and a useful book.”—British Weekly.

“A model of clear and fair-minded study, which we regret we can not so lengthily as we can emphatically commend."— Bookman.

“A fresh and independent study, sympathetic on the whole, yet critical and even antagonistic at times.”—Expository Times.

“We recommend this excellent little volume to all students of moral science.”— Westminster Review.

“Dr Douglas is a competent and sympathetic critic, as well as patient and careful expositor. He seems to have studied all that Mill has written, to have compared one writing with another with a view to find the central thought of Mill, or to find whether there is a central thought, or whether Mill had not changed his view and had not brought elements into his system which were inconsistent with the presup. positions from which he started.”—Professor Iverson in the ("ritical Review.
