Abstract:

"The following translation contains three extracts from the philosophical writings of Jouffroy, one of the most profound of the French philosophers of the nineteenth century, and a pupil of the celebrated Cousin. The first extract, the "Problem of Human Destiny," is taken from the "Melanges Philosophiques." The second extract, treating of the "Moral Facts of Human Nature," has been previously translated by the Rev. William H. Channing. The third extract, contains Jouffroy's "Theoretical Views" of Morality. The three extracts taken together, form a complete whole. The first lays down the problem of human destiny, and shows that the problem can only be solved philosophically by a study of the facts of human nature. The second gives a description of the moral facts of human nature. The moral facts of human nature being ascertained, the third extract gives us the moral law that we ought to obey, in order to accomplish as fully as possible our destiny in this world. Although knowing that the translation is not what it might be, and that it contains many imperfections, the translator still hopes that it may give to the students of philosophy in this country some knowledge of a writer so little known to us and yet so deserving of our attention"--Preface.
