Lectures on metaphysics and logic by William Hamilton( Book )
101 editions published between 1858 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 828 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 Phnomena of Mind; Nomology, or the Science of its Laws; and Ontology, or the Science of Results and Inferences." Among the Phnomena 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)

Lectures on logic by William Hamilton( Book )
6 editions published between 1860 and 1866 in English and held by 3 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.

"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)
