No apology is needful for the Port-R oyal Logic. The Translation of a work of such high repute and sterling ex cellence, if at all faithful, must needs be useful. It is especially likely to be so, now that a revival of interest in logical studies has commenced, since, from its freshness ot thought, and variety of illustration, it is better adapted to meet the wants of inquirers, and foster the awakened interest, than most other works on the subject. It will be right, however, to say a few words in relation to the circumstances under which the present translation is published. It was begun somewhat more than a year ago, but wholly laid aside soon after its commencement, and only hastily resumed within the last few weeks, in order that it might be carried through the press in time for college use during the present winter, so that the whole has been printed, and more than a third part translated, since the commencement of the session. In consequence of this haste, it appears in a much more imperfect form than I could have wished.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Logic, or the Art of Thinking: Being the Port-Royal Logic Aristotle was, however, of itself sufficient to determi ? v controversy; while the energy of his personal character, his eventful life, and tragical death, conspired to fix at tention on his writings, and to give them a wider popu larity than they would otherwise have had. The excite ment, however, thus produced (as was natural, since it was of personal rather than of scientific concernment), soon passed away; and as it had evolved no principle which could form the basis of a new development, logic speedily relapsed into its old state. It may be said, indeed, to have soon fallen into a worse state than that in which it had previously been; and the contrast thus presented between it and the other branches of philosophy, in which so much new life was manifest, could scarcely fail to bring it into discredit, if not into contempt. Everywhere else a Spirit of inquiry and examination was displayed, which was full of promise. Philosophy was evidently casting aside the conditions Of its scholastic existence in the interest of a higher and nobler development. Logic alone seemed incapable of advancement. It underwent no change, but still retained its Old form, after its Old life was dead. So long as scholasticism remained that form was entitled to respect for there was a certain kind of quaint vitality about the old logic of the schools, which was not without its charm. In defect of the life with which we were familiar, it was pleas ing to meet with beings of reason, logical quadrupeds, and disembodied universals, - to see the veritable tree of knowledge whereon genera and species grew, and from which they were gathered to meet the exigencies of man kind, - and to be introduced to those extra-mundane and hyperphysical spaces, where chimeras feed and thrive to giants upon the dew of second intentions. But when the system with which all this was connected had passed away, - when it was no longer possible to discuss with grave simplicity whether twenty thousand angels could.
