Summary:
The ensuing study is primarily a study in the history of ideas. But almost as essentially, it is a study in the history of English literature.

Abstract:

The ensuing study is primarily a study in the history of ideas. But almost as essentially, it is a study in the history of English literature. In fact, its true locus is in that mid-region where the forms of literature step out to incorporate the ideas of philosophy -- where the ideas of philosophy leave philosophy to take on a literary dress. Hence in this study the more purely literary chapters alternate with the more purely philosophical, until, in the last chapter, the two kinds of chapter finally fuse. - Preface.
