"The Sophist" is a dialogue by Plato examining philosophy that was probably written in 360 BC .
"As the title suggests, this translation from the original French undertakes an extensive examination of the books contained in M. Cousin's (1829) lectures on John Locke's Essay on the human understanding. An introduction by the translator and a series of appendices are also included in this work. At the time when the influence of the Cartesian philosophy in France was giving way to the new spirit of the 18th century, nothing was more natural than the ready reception of the system of Locke, claiming as it did--and to a certain extent, justly--to be a fruit of the movement of independence, and of the experimental method. Thus put upon the road of Empiricism, the activity of the French mind continued to develope its principles, and carry out its consequences to their last results. Cousin asserts a two-fold developement of reason or intelligence: the first primitive, unreflective, instinctive; the second ulterior, reflective, voluntary. The former he terms spontaneous reason, spontaneity of reason, or briefly, spontaneity; the latter, reflective reason, reflection of reason, or briefly, reflection. By the spontaneity of reason, is meant "that developement of reason anterior to reflection, that power of reason to seize upon truth at first sight, to comprehend it, and to admit it, without asking or giving an account of its doing so," In this distinction between spontaneous and reflective intelligence; in the recognition of the former as anterior to, and supposed by, the latter--as containing the three great elements of thought--and immediately and positively cognizant of the infinite, no less than of the finite;--it is here that we find the principle which, with its consequences, constitutes and determines the peculiar system of M. Cousin"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved).
