Overview

Scanned, proofed and corrected from the original hardcover edition for enjoyable reading.

An excerpt from the Introduction:

When the arts and the sciences are improved and enlarged, many more words, than those which sufficed in their infancy, become necessary, Nulli unquam, qui res ignorarent, nomina, quibus eas exprimerent, quœsierunt. The author found the technical or rather the scientific words and terms of the German language inadequate to his method of critical philosophising, and was consequently obliged (o coin new ones. The translator of course is reduced to the same necessity in English; for that language is not less copious than our vernacular tongue; and circumlocution or a periphrastical style tends greatly to enfeeble philosophical reasoning.


Should any critic, however, or philosopher, whose province it more immediately is, deign to suggest words or terms more expressive of the meaning, than his may be, he, as his sole aim, in clothing his author's thoughts in an English dress, is, to render their sense faithfully without any affectation of novelty, and to contribute his mite to propagate and diffuse useful and sublime knowledge, will, should this work have the fortune to survive the present edition, then adopt those more apposite words and terms with gratitude and pleasure; for he, though in this instance little more than a mere translator, is far above logomachy, or a dispute about words.


True logic (says Watts) does not require along detail of hard words to amuse mankind, and to puff tip (he mind with empty sounds and a pride of false learning; yet some distinctions and terms of art are necessary to range every conception in its proper class, and to keep our thoughts from confusion.

One learns to understand the rules on which all nature exist. That the lack of understanding is not the absents of logical rule, but our agnostic self.
