About this Item

First American Edition. Pages 264 pp., including 3 pp. glossary of technical terms.8vo. Purple publisher's cloth with printed paper label on spine. First American Edition. NUC: NL0312642. Tryon & Charvat A10e. An extraordinary book with its modern scientific attitude toward mental faculties, the emotions and human behavior, the role of reason in modifying behavior and, importantly, the flow of moral reasoning and behavior from the use of the intellectual reasoning faculties. An early and strong development from the views, not here stated, of Immanuel Kant and from deontological considerations and an antidote to Bentham and Mill in the early part of the nineteenth century. There is a strong base of behavioral conditioning as a modifier of social behavior and moral development. The weakness is the resort to phrenological considerations of Spurzheim and Gall. It ends with a plea for universal education. This first American edition, printed (as noted) by C. A. Green, was preceded in 1833 by a London edition, of which NUC notes 2 copies. Very scarce, overall. Only 1000 copies were printed, but a second edition was published in 1845, without the name of any printer. Corners bumped and worn. Closed 2" tear of front free fly leaf repaired with transparent tape. Mild foxing of preliminary pages and page ends. Fading of spine and portions of covers.Else, Very Good.
