About this title


The Encyclopaedia of Mental Philosophy is the result of one of the most impressive publishing endeavours of the nineteenth century, the Encyclopaedia Metropolitana, or, Universal Dictionary of Knowledge (1817-45). The Metropolitana was devised along radical new lines, an evolutionary system envisaged by the poet, critic and philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834), and its contributors included some of the leading scholars of the day. It represented the first attempt to bring a coherent method to the compilation of dictionaries and encyclopedias. Coleridge's plan of the function and form of the ideal encyclopedia was to present information not in Ôrandom' alphabetical order but through connecting principles. Grouping information systematically, 'guided by the historic sense' and with a clear view of the educational needs of the reader, it was intended, above all, to be 'a methodical compendium of knowledge'.

The Encyclopaedia of Mental Philosophy (1847) collects all the articles from the Metropolitana that comprised the Pure Sciences in Coleridge's system (except mathematics): grammar, logic, metaphysics, morals, law, rhetoric and theology. Eminent writers of the time such as Richard Whately and Richard Jebb contributed extensive essays. Also included is Coleridge's seminal 'Treatise on Method' that gives a full description of his theory of the compilation of encyclopedias and their usefulness for a complete education. Exceedingly rare, The Encyclopaedia of Mental Philosophy cannot be found even in major libraries. This two-volume set, reprinted in its original size, will be important to a wide range of disciplines: nineteenth-century philosophy, science, law, language and linguistics, and bibliographic history, as well as anyone interested in Coleridge as a philosopher.

--all the articles which made up Coleridge's system of Pure Sciences
--extremely rare work taken from the Encyclopaedia Metropolitana
