Science and Sentiment: With Other Papers, Chiefly Philosophical
Scribner, 1882 - 506 стор.
"The papers which compose this volume have been already given to the public, either as lectures or critical essays. They are philosophical in their themes, but not severely philosophical in their mode of treatment. Most of these themes are of present and active interest to the minds of thoughtful men, and are likely to occupy their attention for the future. By the advice of some of his friends, the Author has collected them for republication, as, in some sort, 'tracts for the times'."--Preface.

Сторінка 453 - It is come, I know not how, to be taken for granted by many persons, that Christianity is not so much as a subject of inquiry, but that it is now at length discovered to be fictitious.

Сторінка 50 - The constant resemblances which link phenomena together, and the constant sequences which unite them as antecedent and consequent, are termed their laws. The laws of phenomena are all we know respecting them. Their essential nature, and their ultimate causes, either efficient or final, are unknown and inscrutable to us.
