INFLUENCE OF DESCARTES ON METAPHYSICAL SPECULATION IN ENGLAND.
"AN excellent monograph which shows both powers of thought and a philosophical erudition very unusual in the English metaphysical literature of the present time. In an introduction the author elaborates the speculative principles which govern his work. His first chapter is devoted to discussing the 'Internal Connection of the various Systems.' Next he passes to Descartes and gives an exhaustive review of the Cartesian philosophy. The succeeding Chapters are: The Contemporaries of Descartes; John Locke and his school; George Berkeley; David Hume. These writers are discussed in their relation to Descartes mainly. The fundamental stand-point of the author can be seen when he states the central principle to be 'The Notion and its moment.' An acquaintance with the best German works which treat of his subject is a leading feature. D. J. S." From Journal of Speculative Philosophy, Jan. 1876.
"The analysis of Descartes' views is careful and clear, and the results of his teaching in England are treated with fulness and considerable research... Throughout accurate in statement...the essay as a whole deserves notice for many excellent qualities."-Scotsman.
"Mr Cunningham's treatise on Descartes and English speculation is a model in its kind: it is clear, penetrating, succinct, and trustworthy."
"He has produced a readable account of Descartes and his bearings on English thought. The 'Introduction' contains a fair résumé of Hegel's views upon the history of philosophy.”—Westminster Review.

THE GREEK TEXT, THE LATIN VERSION, AND A NEW
THIS Dissertation, in a slightly different form, obtained a Hulsean prize in 1874, and is published in consequence of the conditions imposed by the trustees. I take this opportunity of acknowledging the constant assistance I have received, while recasting my Essay, from my friend Mr G. H. Rendall, Fellow of Trinity College. He has besides kindly enabled me to render the book more complete than it would otherwise have been, by editing the texts and furnishing an English translation and commentary, which will, I am sure, be found the most valuable part of the whole.
