REMARKS ON SPENCER'S DEFINITION OF MIND AS

CORRESPONDENCE.

BY WM. JAMES.

As a rule it may be said that, at a time when readers are so overwhelmed with work as they are at the present day, all purely critical and destructive writing ought to be reprobated. The half-gods generally refuse to go, in spite of the ablest criticism, until the gods actually have arrived ; but then, too, criticism is hardly needed. But there are cases in which every rule may be broken. "What !” exclaimed Voltaire, when accused of offering no substitute for the Christianity he attacked, “ je vous délivre d'une béte féroce, et vous me demandez par quoi je la remplace!Without comparing Mr. Spencer's definition of Mind either to Christianity or to a béte féroce," it may certainly be said to be very far-reaching in, its consequences, and, according to certain standards, noxious; whilst probably a large proportion of those hardheaded readers who subscribe to the Popular Science Monthly and Nature, and whose sole philosopher Mr. Spencer is, are fascinated by it without being in the least aware what its consequences are.

The defects of the formula are so glaring that I am surprised it should not long ago have been critically overhauled.
