Third Edition Translated by W. S. Hough and W. R. Boyce Gibson

$3.00 net; postpaid, $3.30 “ The book before us is a presentation of the view of great thinkers from Plato to the present time,' and demands therefore a mastery of the theme itself, and of the way in which the deepest and most obscure thought of the world has been associated with it. It is not the purpose of this brief notice to follow this long path of light. We wish simply to indicate the comprehensive and intelligent way in which it is pursued, the thoughtfulness with which it has been wrought out, and the reward which it is sure to bring to those who pursue it in a kindred temper.” — The Dial.
