RICHARD WHATELY, D.D.
A RCHBISHOP OF DUBLIN.
REPRINTED FROM THE NINTH (OCTAVO) EDITION.
In the present edition, a few insertions, and alterations of expression, in soine places, have been introduced. In this and in the preceding edition, several passages have been transferred from the places they formerly occupied, to others which appeared more suitable. And a brief, but, I trust, clear exposure has been added (in Introd. g 4, and B. IV. Ch. I. § 1, 2) of the untenabie character of some objections which have been of late years revived, in a somewhat new form, against the utility of Science generally,--against the syllogistic theory,—and against the explanations given in this treatise, of reasoning from Induction.
These answers (and also additional remarks on some of the same points, in § 4 of the Introduction to the “ Elements of Rhetoric") have been before the Public now some years; and as no attempt at a reply has been made, even in subsequent editions of the very works containing the objections, a strong presumption is thus afforded of the soundness of my views.
The reader is to observe that the angular [brackets] denote that the word so enclosed is equivalent in meaning to that which precedes it.
