TO

VICTOR COUSIN,
PEER OF FRANCE, LATE MINISTER OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION,
MEMBER OF THE INSTITUTE, PROFESSOR OF PHILOSOPHY,

ETC., ETC.,
THIS EDITION OF THE WORKS OF REID

IS DEDICATED;

NOT ONLY,
IN TOKEN OF THE EDITOR'S ADMIRATION

OF
THE FIRST PHILOSOPHER OF FRANCE,

BUT,
AS A TRIBUTE, DUE APPROPRIATELY AND PRE-EMINENTLY

TO
THE STATESMAN,

THROUGH WHOM
SCOTLAND HAS BEEN AGAIN UNITED INTELLECTUALLY
TO HER OLD POLITICAL ALLY,

AND
THE AUTHOR'S WRITINGS,
(THE BEST RESULT OF SCOTTISH SPECULATION,)
MADE THE BASIS OF ACADEMICAL INSTRUCTION IN PHILOSOPHY,

THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL NATION OF EUROPE.

ADVERTISEMENT.

The present issue contains the whole Works of Reid, hitherto published, with many of his writings, printed or collected for the first time. It contains also, the Foot-Notes of the Editor on the texts of Reid and Stewart, and a large proportion (in length) of the Editor's Supplementary Dissertations. There remain the sequel of these Dissertations, the General Preface, and the Indices;-all of which are either prepared, or their materials collected. These (Deo volente) will be comprised in a concluding issue; and, if requisite, title-pages for two volumes, then given. The Notes and Dissertations have insensibly increased to a size and importance far beyond what was ever anticipated; but the book having been always destined primarily for academical use, the price of the whole will not exceed thirty shillings. Being stereotyped, what additions may be made to any subsequent edition, will be published also apart.

It is proper to state:—that the Foot-Notes were written, as the texts passed through the press, in 1837 and 1838 ; that the Supplementary Dissertations, to the end of D*, were written and stereotyped in 1841 and 1842; the rest being added recently.

Nov. 1846.

What is not worth noticing in detail:-In Greek words, among other inaccuracies, the ac. cent and breathing are, in one or two places, over the first, instead of over the second vowel of an initial diphthong; in oxytones, the common practice of accentuation has been partially, and only partially, superseded by the Reitzian; and in the minute type of the foot.notes to Reid's text, the resembling forms of ç and s have been repeatedly commuted.

November 1846.— The present issue (ending with page 914) contains the whole Works of Reid, hitherto published, with many of his writings, printed or collected for the first time. The text has been collated, revised, and corrected; useful distinctions and supplements inserted; the leading words and propositions marked out; the allusions indicated; the quotations filled up. It contains also the FootNotes of the Editor on the texts of Reid and Stewart, and a large proportion (in length) of the Editor's Supplementary Dissertations. There remain the sequel of these Dissertations, the General Preface, and the Indices ;-all of which are either prepared, or their materials collected. These (Deo volente) will be comprised in a concluding issue, and title-pages for two volumes then given. The Notes and Dissertations have insensibly increased to a size and importance far beyond what was ever anticipated; but the book having been always destined primarily for academical use, the price of the whole will not exceed thirty shillings. Being stereotyped, what additions may be made to any subsequent edition, will be published also apart.

It is proper to state :—that the Foot-notes were written, as the texts passed through the press, in 1837 and 1838; that the Supplementary Dissertations, to the end of D*, were written and stereotyped in 1841 and 1842; the rest being added recently.

[October 1863.-In the present edition the errata have been, for the most part, corrected on the stereotype plates; the Indices have been added; and the sequel of the Dissertations has been, so far as possible, completed from Sir W. Hamilton's MSS. For an account of what has been done in this last respect, the reader is referred to the Postscript at the end of the Supplementary Dissertations.]
