Description: 2 volumes 23 cm.
Contents: v. 1. The education necessarily different in different men, is perhaps the cause of that inequality of understandings hitherto attributed to the unequal perfection of the organs. All men, commonly well organized, have an equal attitude to understanding. Of the general causes of the inequality of understandings. Men commonly well organized are all susceptible of the same degree of passion : the inequality of their capacities is always the effect of the difference of situation in which chance has placed them --
v. 2. Of the errors and contradictions of those, whose principles differing from ine, refer the unequal degrees of understandings, to the unequal degrees of perfection in the organs of the senses. Of the evils produced by ignorance. The virtues and happiness of a people are not the effects of the sanctity of their religion, but of the sagacity of their laws. Of what constitutes the happiness of individuals : of the basis on which we should found national felicity, necessarily composed of the felicity of all the individuals. Of the possibility of laying down a good plan of legislation. Of the power of instruction : of the means of improving it to the utmost : of the obstacles that oppose the progress of this science. Recapitulation.
