Lectures on metaphysics and logic by William Hamilton( Book )

"The Lectures comprised in the present Volumes form the second and concluding portion of the Biennial Course on Metaphysics and Logic, which was commenced by Sir William Hamilton on his election to the Professorial Chair in 1836, and repeated, with but slight alterations, till his decease in 1856. The Appendix contains various papers, composed for the most part during this period, which, though portions of their contents were publicly taught at least as early as 1840, were only to a very small extent incorporated into the text of the Lectures. The Lectures on Logic, like those on Metaphysics, were chiefly composed during the session in which they were first delivered (1837-8); and the statements made in the preface to the previous volumes, as regards the circumstances and manner of their composition, are equally applicable to the present course. In this, as in the preceding series, the Author has largely availed himself of the labours of previous writers, many of whom are but little known in this country. To the works of the German logicians of the present century, particularly to those of Krug and Esser, these Lectures are under especial obligations"--Preface.

"The following Lectures on Metaphysics constitute the first portion of the Biennial Course which the author was in the habit of delivering during the period of his occupation of the Chair of Logic and Metaphysics in the University of Edinburgh. The Author himself, adopting the Kantian division of the mental faculties into those of Knowledge, Feeling, and Conation, considers the Philosophy of Mind as comprehending, in relation to each of these, the three great subdivisions of Psychology, or the Science of the Phenomena of Mind; Nomology, or the Science of its Laws; and Ontology, or the Science of Results and Inferences. The term Metaphysics, in its strictest sense, is synonymous with the last of these subdivisions; while, in its widest sense, it may be regarded as including the first also, --the second being, in practice at least, if not in scientific accuracy, usually distributed among other departments of Philosophy. The following Lectures cannot be considered as embracing the whole province of Metaphysics in either of the above senses"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)

Lectures on logic by William Hamilton( file )
6 editions published between 1860 and 1866 in English and held by 79 libraries worldwide
"A Science is a complement of cognitions, having, in point of form, the character of logical perfection; in point of matter, the character of real truth. The constituent attributes of logical perfection are the perspicuity, the completeness, the harmony, of knowledge. But the perspicuity, completeness, and harmony of our cognitions are, for the human mind, possible only through method. Method in general denotes a procedure in the treatment of an object, conducted according to determinate rules. Method, in reference to science, denotes, therefore, the arrangement and elaboration of cognitions according to definite rules, with the view of conferring on these a logical perfection. The methods by which we proceed in the treatment of the objects of our knowledge are two; or rather method, considered in its integrity, consists of two processes, --analysis and synthesis"--Chapter.

Meditationes de prima philosophia = Meditations on first philosophy by René Descartes( Book )

"This edition features reliable, accessible translations; useful editorial materials; and a straightforward presentation of the Objections and Replies, including the objections from Caterus, Arnauld, and Hobbes, accompanied by Descartes' replies, in their entirety. The letter serving as a reply to Gassendi--in which several of Descartes' associates present Gassendi's best arguments and Descartes' replies--conveys the highlights and important issues of their notoriously extended exchange. Roger Ariew's illuminating Introduction discusses the Meditations and the intellectual environment surrounding its reception."--Publisher's website
