PREFACE

THIS e-book is meant as a text-book for sketch-courses within the historical past of philosophy. it's written for the coed instead of for the instructor. it's a heritage of philosophy upon the heritage of geography and of literary and political history.

As a text-book for sketch-courses it employs sum maries, tables, and different generalizations as is helping to the reminiscence. The philosophical educating is gifted as easily as attainable, so one can carry into prominence in simple terms the best doctrines. my very own own feedback and interpretation at the one hand, and causes in technical language at the different, were kept away from so far as attainable. occasionally i've got needed to make a choice from interpretation and technicality, within which case the limita tions of area have made up our minds my selection. because the e-book is meant for the coed instead of for the trainer, it makes the trainer the entire extra beneficial; for it places into the arms of the coed an overview and into the arms of the instructor the class-room time for uplifting the scholar together with his personal interpretations. In utilizing geographical maps, modern litera ture, and political heritage, this publication is only using for pedagogical purposes the inventory of knowledge with which the school scholar is offered while he starts the historical past of philosophy.

A sturdy decades of expertise in educating the background of philosophy to novices have confident me that scholars come to the topic with 4 periods of

ideas, with which they could correlate philosophic document trines: reliable geographical wisdom, a few ancient and a few literary wisdom, and plenty of undefined in keeping with sonal philosophical reviews. in fact, their own philosophical evaluations shape crucial staff, yet extra as anything to be clarified by way of the civilizing impact of the topic than as an method of the sub ject itself. the one "memory-hooks" upon which the trainer may well count on to hold philosophic doctrines are the student's rules of heritage, literature, and geography. If the heritage of philosophy is handled purely as a sequence of doctrines, the scholar starting the topic feels not just that the land is unusual, yet that he's a stranger in it. in addition to, to isolate the old philosophical document trines is to offer the coed a fallacious old perspec tive, on account that philosophic proposal and modern occasions are inseparable points of background. every one translates the opposite, and neither could be accurately understood without the opposite. If the background of philosophy is to have any importance for the newbie, it needs to be proven to offer a intending to history.

So a long way because the fabrics that shape any background of phi losophy are involved, i've got basically attempted to rearrange and get them organized as regards to the coed and almost about the background of which they shape an in tegral half. i'm hence overwhelmingly indebted to each solid authority to whom i've got had entry, yet by and large i've got the inspiring path of the good Windelband. Many keen associates have learn components of the manuscript and provided feedback and criticisms. i'm fairly indebted to Professors C. P. Parker, Ephraim Emerton, A. O. Norton, and J. H. Ropes, and Dr. B. A. G. Fuller of Harvard University;

to Professor Mary W. Calkins of Wellesley university ; to Professors C. S. Wade and D. L. Maulsby of Tufts Col lege ; and to my spouse, Abby B. Cushman. notwithstanding, for all of the faults of the e-book, which has been decades in guidance, i'm by myself responsible.

Instead of lists of books for collateral analyzing, positioned on the finish of chapters or of the e-book, the coed will locate references within the footnotes to the precise pages of many beneficial books. I should still wish to name the student's recognition to an appendix to the dialogue of Plato. it is a whole number of passages from Plato made by means of the past due Professor Jowett for English readers. this feature Professor Jowett was once conversant in dis tribute to his Oxford type, of which ...
