THE BEGINNING AND END OF METAPHYSICS,
AND A NECESSARY ASSUMPTION IN ALL
SOME OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
'' This is a little book, but it contains more sound philosophy than many pretentious treatises. . . . In an admirably lucid way the author scatters to the winds the baseless assumptions of the sense-philosophy."—British Quarterly Review.
"The author is evidently an independent thinker of no mean order, and his wide range of quotation from philosophical writers of different schools shows that he is quite at home in the thoughts and opinions of others on the great theme he has undertaken to discuss. Both these requisites were necessary, and the wonder is that an author who must have felt he possessed them should have deemed it desirable to withhold his name. Whether this be from modesty or otherwise, he certainly walks with firm step over the ground held by the greatest thinkers, treating with the conscious dignity of independent thought the opinions of the ancient philosophers, and making himself no less at his ease in the presence of Kant, Hegel, Hume, the two Mills, Bain, Spencer, Lewes, Hamilton, Martineau, Huxley, Tyndall, and Comte."— The Inquirer.
"It is not often that we have to complain of the brevity of a sermon or of a treatise on philosophy, but in the case of a little book of the latter kind, recently published anonymously, we have found the arguments so cogent, the style so clear, and the matter at issue so important, that we heartily wish that the writer had allowed himself room for the fuller treatment of his subject. . . . We confidently refer our readers to this well-reasoned volume." —Modern Review.

AND OTHER SERMONS.
SOME OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
"The outcome of a powerful and cultured mind. ... He knows, moreover, how to express his thoughts in clear, vigorous, direct language, pregnant with earnestness and feeling."—Scotsman.
"We decidedly recommend them to persons perplexed by the speculations of modern science."—Spectator.
'' This is a remarkable volume of sermons. Though it consists of only about 300 pages, it contains an amount of thought and learning which might have been expanded into a bulky folio."—Glasgow Mail.
"These sermons are some of the very best produced in this country within the last hundred years."—Inquirer.
"The author is an original thinker, whose sympathies are very wide."
"Mr Momerie is not an ordinary thinker or preacher. His thoughts glow with fire and are fraught with originality. He is evidently a hard student, and one who has taken a wide view of men and things. He is versed in science, and keeps himself abreast of scientific research. His sermons are model sermons in point of literary merit. . . . The second discourse, which treats of the' Mystery of Suffering,' is a masterpiece for exquisite thought and logical reasoning. There is a cogency, simplicity, and beauty running through each sermon that carries the mind and will of the reader by simple force. We heartily wish that this little volume of sermons could be placed in the hands of every preacher and teacher, whatever their opinions or persuasion."—Church Union.
"Die Vortrage zeigen allenthalben eine schone Harmonie zwischen Schriftwahrheit und Lebenswahrheit "—Deutsches IAtteraturblatt.
'' The author of the ' Origin of Evil' will go sadly astray if he does not make his mark on the age."—London Figaro.
"We should almost like to have heard these sermons preached. We are willing to read them carefully, and recommend them to others for like reading, even though, in almost every instance, we dissent from the author's pleading."—National Reformer.
"These sermons are everything that sermons ought not to be."— English Independent.
WILLIAM BLACKWOOD & SONS, Edinburgh And London.
