Excerpt
Excerpt: Prefatory Note. This work has been with me a labor of love. The gathering of materials for it, and the writing of it, as carrying me into what I feel to be interesting scenes, have afforded me great pleasure, which is the only reward I am likely to get. I publish it, as the last, and to me the only remaining, means of testifying my regard for my country?loved all the more because I am now far from it?and my country?s philosophy, which has been the means of stimulating thought in so many of Scotland?s sons. The English-speaking public, British and American, has of late been listening to divers forms of philosophy,?to Coleridge, to Kant, to Cousin, to Hegel, to Comte, to Berkeley,?and is now inclined to a materialistic psychology. Not finding permanent satisfaction in any of these, it is surely possible that it may grant a hearing to the sober philosophy of Scotland. M. Cousin has remarked that the philosophy of Scotland is part of the history of the country. I have treated it as such; and I claim to have one qualification for the work: I am in thorough sympathy with the characteristic sentiments of my native land. I have farther tried to make my work a contribution to what may be regarded as a new department of science, the history of thought, which is quite as important as the history of wars, of commerce, of literature, or of civilization.
