Lectures on metaphysics and logic by William Hamilton( Book )
76 editions published between 1858 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 699 libraries worldwide
"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.

Discourse on method, optics, geometry and meteorology by René Descartes( Book )
38 editions published between 1912 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 508 libraries worldwide
Rene Descartes was a central figure in the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century. In his Discourse on Method he outlined the contrast between mathematics and experimental sciences, and the extent to which each one can achieve certainty. Drawing on his own work in geometry, optics, astronomy and physiology, Descartes developed the hypothetical method that characterizes modern science, and this soon came to replace the traditional techniques derived from Aristotle. Many of Descartes' most radical ideas such as the disparity between our perceptions and the realities that cause them have been highly influential in the development of modern philosophy. from http://www.abebooks.com (August 22, 2011)

Lectures on metaphysics and logic by William Hamilton( file )
37 editions published between 1858 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 159 libraries worldwide
The following Lectures on Metaphysics constitute the first portion of the Biennial Course which the lamented 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 Phænomena of Mind; Nomology, or the Science of its Laws; and Ontology, or the Science of Results and Inferences." Among the Phænomena of Mind, the Cognitive Faculties are discussed fully and satisfactorily; those of Feeling are treated with less detail; those of Conation receive scarcely any special consideration; while the questions of Ontology, or Metaphysics proper, are touched upon only incidentally. Apart, however, from considerations of their intrinsic value, these Lectures possess a high academical and historical interest"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

"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.
