It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters. "My dear Mr. Bennet,­" said his lady to him one day, "have you heard that Netherfield Park is let at last?­"

Though many notices of Miss Edgeworth have appeared from time to time, nothing approaching to a Life of her has been published in this country. As I have had the good fortune to have access to an unpublished memoir of her, written by her stepmother, as well as to a large number of her private letters, I am enabled to place what I hope is at least an authentic biography before the reader.

A pivotal piece of philosophical literature, "The Critique of Pure Reason" is quite likely Immanuel Kant's greatest work. Kant was a professor of philosophy in the German city of Konisberg during the late 1700s. It was during that time that he penned several works based on his philosophical beliefs of which the greatest is often considered to be this work. Considered by many as one of the most important works of philosophy ever written, "The Critique of Pure Reason" puts forth Kant belief that true knowledge comes from a combination of pure reason and experience. Presented here in this volume is the classic translation of J. M. D. Meiklejohn.

Author:

The Republic is a Socratic dialogue written by Plato around 380 BC concerning the definition of justice and the order and character of the just city-­state and the just man. The dramatic date of the dialogue has been much debated and though it must take place some time during the Peloponnesian War,­"there would be jarring anachronisms if any of the candidate specific dates between 432 and 404 were assigned". It is Plato’s best-­known work and has proven to be one of the most intellectually and historically influential works of philosophy and political theory.

This little volume (the result of meditation and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the much-­written-­upon subject of the power of thought. It is suggestive rather than explanatory, its object being to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that-- "They themselves are makers of themselves.­"
