Excerpt from Epistemology; Or the Theory of Knowledge, Vol. 1 of 2: An Introduction to General Metaphysics

The present work, which was commenced on the publication of the author's Ontology, is written from the same general standpoint as the Ontology and his earlier treatise on The Science of Logic. It aims at applying the principles of Scholasticism to the solution of the problems raised by a critical inquiry into the validity of knowledge and the grounds of certitude. It does not purport to be in any sense a history of theories of knowledge, or to supply anything like an adequate bibliography of works on the subject. It is primarily a text-book for the use of university students in philosophy, though it is hoped that a perusal of it may be found helpful to all who desire a closer acquaintance with the attitude of modern scholastic writers towards the critical problems which almost monopolize the attention of philosophers nowadays. It is needless to emphasize the growing importance of such problems in this age of restless inquiry and scepticism. Nor will a text-book in English from the standpoint of Scholasticism be deemed superfluous.

Kant's theory of knowledge is the only non-scholastic theory examined in any considerable detail: because most of the modern theories draw their inspiration directly or indirectly from principles propounded in the Critiques, so that the student who can appraise these principles on their merits will be in a position to deal with those theories in whatever guise they may confront him.
