VFF-G41 Holland, F: M. The rise of intellectual liberty

from Thales to Copernicus. “The writer of this work has pursued a distinct pur. pose of his own; for he has endeavored to write, not a history of philosophy, but a history of free thinking. A thorough examination of this work convinces us that Mr. Holland has read too much and thought too little. He has been an indefatigable collector of facts of a cer. tain kind. But he has not added to our stock of histori. cal truth. He has not brooded over the facts until their organic relations have been revealed; he has not grouped events so that they illustrate historic laws and processes.

He overloads us with statements of what occurred, but he gives us no conception of the causes of human progress; nor does he trace the continuity of historic

forces." Hugo, V. M., comte. Actes et paroles depuis l'exil. 1870-76.

We see the design of the original in Mr. Ormsby's English, but the colour has lost some of its vividness, and the outline is at times blurred.
