About this Item

8vo. x. 397 (1)pp. 1/2 brown leather over marbled boards. Marbled page edges. Printed on high quality cotton rag. Enchanting work on logic. Written by renowned German psychologist Friedrich Eduard Beneke (see below). The Encyclopedia Britannica summarizes Beneke's system as follows: "The distinctive peculiarity of Beneke's system consists, first, in the firmness with which he maintained that in empirical psychology is to be found the basis of all philosophy; and secondly, in his rigid treatment of mental phenomena by the genetic method. According to him, the perfected mind is a development from simple elements, and the first problem of philosophy is the determination of these elements and of the processes by which the development takes place." Age wear to binding, with cracks to spine and some parts missing. Binding starting to split alongside spine, but still firmly attached. Owner's stamp to inside of front board, with owner's signature to free front endpaper. Browning and foxing throughout. In German. Overall good condition. On the author (Source: 11th edition Encyclopedia Britannica):BENEKE, FRIEDRICH EDUARD (1798-1854), German psychologist, was born at Berlin on the 17th of February 1798, studied at the universities of Halle and Berlin, and served as a volunteer in the war of 1815. After studying theology under Schleiermacher and De Wette, he turned to pure philosophy, studying particularly English writers and the German modifiers of Kantianism, such as Jacobi, Fries and Schopenhauer. In 1820 he published his Erkenntnisslehre, his Erfahrungsseelenlehre als Grundlage ales Wissens, and his inaugural dissertation De Veris Philosophiae Initiis. (.) In 1822 his lectures were prohibited at Berlin, according to his own belief through the influence of Hegel with the Prussian authorities, who also prevented him from obtaining a chair from the Saxon government. He retired to Gottingen, lectured there for some years, and was then allowed to return to Berlin. In 1832 he received an appointment as professor extraordinarius in the university, which he continued to hold till his death. On the 1st of March 1854 he disappeared, and more than two years later his remains were found in the canal near . There was some suspicion that he had committed suicide in a fit of mental depression.
