De l'esprit; or, Essays on the mind and its several faculties by Helvétius( Book )

"This book opens with a discussion of the mind considered in itself. The next essay looks at the mind relative to society. The third essay discusses whether genius ought to be considered as a natural gift, or as an effect of education. Finally, the fourth essay looks at the different faculties of the mind."

A commentary and review of Montesquieu's Spirit of laws by Antoine Louis Claude Destutt de Tracy( Book )
35 editions published between 1811 and 1979 in English and held by 504 libraries worldwide
"Montesquieu's political treatise (1752) The Spirit of Laws covers a wide range of topics in politics, law, sociology, and anthropology. Montesquieu advocates constitutionalism and the separation of powers, the abolition of slavery, the preservation of civil liberties and the rule of law, and the idea that political and legal institutions ought to reflect the social and geographical character of each particular community. In the present book, de Tracy brings a scientific approach to explaining the motives, and hence the observed consequences, of various kinds of government styles. He systematically works through many substantial flaws in Montesquieu's work, and delves into Montesquieu's logical gaps. His values of personal liberty, human equality, and intellectual pursuit show through in every chapter. His explanations of economics and how different government organizations do or do not contribute to economic welfare and personal liberty are clever and clear; and he is frank in suggesting that economics as a theoretical subject warrants illumination by others."
