Doctrine of the will by Asa Mahan( Book )

32 editions published between 1845 and 2013 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To one whose aim is, to "serve his generation according to the Will of God, " but two reasons would seem to justify an individual in claiming the attention of the public in the capacity of an author-the existence in the public mind of a want which needs to be met-and the full belief, that the Work which he has produced is adapted to meet that want. Under the influence of these two considerations, the following Treatise is presented to the public. Whether the author has judged rightly or not, it is not for him to decide. The decision of that question is left with the public, to whom the Work is now presented. It is doubtful, whether any work, prepared with much thought and pains-taking, was ever published with the conviction, on the part of the author, that it was unworthy of public regard. The community, however, may differ from him entirely on the subject; and as a consequence, a work which he regards as so imperiously demanded by the public interest, falls dead from the press. Many an author, thus disappointed, has had occasion to be reminded of the admonition, "Ye have need of patience." Whether the following Treatise shall succeed in gaining the public ear, or not, one consolation will remain with the writer, the publication of the work Has his sense of duty. To his respected Associates in the Institution over which he presides, Associates with whose approbation and counsel the work, was prepared, the Author would take this occasion publicly to express his grateful acknowledgments for the many important suggestions which he received from them, during the progress of its preparation"--Preface.

The system of mental philosophy by Asa Mahan( )

21 editions published between 1882 and 2011 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The object of the following treatise is to furnish, not only for College classes, but especially for our Academies and High Schools a complete system of Mental Science. Two facts render the treatises in common use unadapted, particularly to the two purposes last named. Such treatises, in the first place, are too large for common use. Then, with hardly any exceptions, they treat of but one department of the mind, the Intellect. The object of the following treatise is to remedy both these defects--to furnish a work sufficiently ample for a clear elucidation of the whole subject, and, at the same time, so concise as not to overburden the mind of the pupil, on the one hand, and, on the other, to furnish a full knowledge of the entire system of Mental Science, the Philosophy, not of the Intellect merely, but also of the Sensibility and Will. It is fully believed by the Author, and he states this as the result of some thirty years' experience in teaching the science, that every pupil, not only in our College classes, but every advanced student in our Academies and High Schools, is capable of fully mastering this treatise, and that when he has done so, he will have attained not only to a distinct understanding of the different faculties of the mind, but also of the varied functions of each of those faculties"--Preface.
