"This edition of Thoreau's political essays includes "Civil Disobedience," selections from Walden, "Life Without Principle," and the anti-slavery addresses, such as "Slavery in Massachusetts." In her introduction, Nancy L.

2 editions published in 1742 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The subjects treated in the first essays, space, substance, body and spirit, have no inconsiderable influence in adjusting our ideas of God and Creatures, animate and inanimate beings. Body and spirit are the two only proper substances that we know of, and if their distinct essences can be limited and adjusted in clear ideas, it will be a happy clew to lead us into some further knowledge of the visible and invisible world, and will give us a more particular and distinct acquaintance with human nature, which is compounded of matter and mind. Also included are remarks on Mr. Locke's Essay on the Human Understanding and a brief scheme of ontology"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
