L. lut. A. 14 d. 18
THE following lectures were delivered to a class of young students who could not be expected to have much, if any, previous acquaintance with the subject. The purpose was thus to explain the nature and limits of the subject matter, to stimulate to further enquiry, and to point out the modes of conducting that enquiry. All discussion of controverted points or elaboration of details, further than might seem needed for purposes of illustration, would have been out of place. Nevertheless opportunity was always taken to indicate where the chief centres of debate lie and what are the kinds of authorities which must ultimately decide the points in issue.
All the lectures, except the first, were taken down by a short-hand writer as they were delivered. Owing to an accident that befell the reporting of the first lecture, this lecture has had to be re-constructed afresh from the lecturer's notes.
