Education as a science by Alexander Bain( Book )

39 editions published between 1879 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mental and moral science. A compendium of psychology and ethics by Alexander Bain( Book )

28 editions published between 1868 and 1884 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present treatise, contains a Systematic Exposition of Mind, a History of the leading Questions in Mental Philosophy, and a copious Dissertation on Ethics. The Exposition of Mind, occupying nearly half the work, is, for the most part, an abridgement of my two volumes on the subject. I have singled out, and put in conspicuous type, the leading positions; and have given a sufficient number of examples to make them understood. It is not to be expected that the full effect of the larger exposition can be produced in the shorter; still, there may be an occasional advantage in the more succinct presentation of complicated doctrines. As regards the Controverted Questions, I have entered fully into the history of opinion, so as to present the different views, both formerly, and at present, entertained on each. Nominalism and Realism, the Origin of Knowledge in the mind, External Perception, Beauty, and Freewill, are the chief subjects thus treated"--Preface.
