Manual of Neo-Scholastic Philosophy
A rare first printing
First US edition, hardback bound in green cloth with gilt titling to spine and upper board. 19 × 12.5cm, xviii +452pp.
This book aims to publish a complete and systematic exposition of Scholastic philosophy based upon the sound principles of Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas and bring it into contact with the facts of modern science. The considerations which have guided the author in its composition are chiefly two: he wished both to modernize and popularize the Philosophia Perennis. The book covers the topics: philosophy of nature, psychology, ontology and metaphysics and natural theology.
This is a scarce first edition and is in good to fair condition. The green cloth boards have a water mark to the fore-edge, heaviest to the front which has lifted the sheen off. The pages have light and intermittent spotted foxing and tanning, and the three pages of the introduction have quite heavy pencil marginal annotations, and previous owner's name to front pastedown. Otherwise, the book is in sound condition and remains perfectly readable.
