Introduction to Philosophy By George Thomas White Patrick, Ph.D. Published by Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, 1924. Pp. 463. Price, $2.50.

It is natural that teachers should write books, and the present book impresses one as being written by a teacher for teaching purposes. Its arrangement indicates that it has been produced either to that end or by a person accustomed to teaching. The material of the chapters is carefully classified by appropriate black-faced headings at the sides, and each chapter is followed by a comprehensive bibliography. The book, in other words, is a source book for the class room, so to speak, presenting philosophy in its history and its present theories, modified as they must be by the recent advances in science, not only psychological science, but physical science. The matter of materialism of a generation ago no longer exists, so that it has been well said,“We know too much about matter now to be materialists.” Other things have changed as well, and this book, setting forth philosophy in its various ramifications, takes account of these changes.

White.
