Excerpt from The Intuitive Basis of Knowledge: An Epistemological Inquiry

I yield to the request of my friend Mrs. Duddington that I should write such words of introduction as are needful to the English version of Professor Lossky's work. Yet, in relieving her of that task, I am depriving the reader of what would have been to him far more useful. For she has an intimate acquaintance with the modes of philosophical reflexion that have become prevalent in her native land and could have delineated the intellectual environment in the midst of which her former teachers thought has taken shape and reached its present outlook. I am, however, thus afforded the opportunity of congratulating Mrs. Duddington upon the completion of an arduous and difficult undertaking. This is the first Russian philosophical book that has been translated into English. The translator had, there fore, no precedent to follow in the attempt to give a rendering of the original, which should be as faithful to the sense and as close to the authors mode of expression as was consistent with lucidity and intelligibility. Moreover, Russian philosophical writers of the present day are labouring under a disadvantage similar to that under which the philosophical writers of Germany laboured in Kant's time, - the disadvantage, namely, of having to a large extent to coin their technical terms as they go along.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Intuitive Basis of Knowledge: An Epistemological Inquiry Galicz, Dawydow, Bjelinsky and Strachow among them - Who had succeeded more or less in familiaris ing those of their countrymen interested in philosophy with the post-kantian forms of idealism. Then, again, somewhat later, the doctrines of the English empiricists and of the French positivists found ad herents and gave rise to a considerable amount of intellectual activity. The writings of Roberty, for instance, most of which also appeared in French, had not an inconsiderable circulation both in France and in England. Professor Lossky draws special atten tion (p. 216 sqq.) to a rationalistic movement that, in contrast to the movement which emanated from Schelling and Hegel, took its rise from the thought of Leibniz. I suspect that the in?uence of Leibniz dates back to the middle of the eighteenth century, and began to be felt in Russia owing to the importa tion of the treatises of Wolff and his followers, which were for a time used as text-books. Be that as it may, it is instructive to note that in Russia, as in Eng land, there is now a growing school of philosophical inquirers who are seeking to discover a mode of recon oiling to some extent the individualism of Leibniz with a spiritual monism more or less of the Hegelian type.
