Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1860 Excerpt: ...matter, this title of honour.

In consequence of the subtle and insoluble questions prosecuted by the schoolmen, under the head of metaphysics, the word and the inquiries which it includes have been exposed to ridicule.' 1 Preface to the Drat edition of the Cril. of rare Reason.

Sydney Smith (Elementary Sketchesof Moral Philosophy, chap. 1, p. 3,) with aa much caution as if bad been a handgrenade.
