born analytical faculty, for the difficult task which he has undertaken. Trained in the philosophical schools of London, Oxford, Cambridge, and Edinburgh, Dr Mellone, through much study of books as well as through personal intercourse with eminent living teachers, has pene. trated thoroughly into the spirit and tendencies of the chief recent forms of metaphysical and ethical speculation, and we can confidently say that all students who aim at something more than a merely superficial acquaintance with philosophy, will find the careful reading of this work most helpful and suggestive.”The Inquirer.

This volume, which is, as we gather from the Preface, in part the outcome of studies pursued by the author as Hibbert Scholar, is undoubtedly one of the ablest of the productions which have appeared under those auspices, and, indeed, appears to indicate the accession to the ranks of philosophical writers of a thinker and writer of distinguished metaphysical gifts. ...... Our business is to call attention to the suggestiveness and ability of the work, and to recommend it to the careful study of the philosophical student, for whom it is specially designed.”—The Manchester Guardian.

“In good criticism there is always present the constructive element, and in this respect the book fully justifies its title. The central problems of philosophy are clearly stated, their history clearly and briefly sketched, and the chief solutions that have been offered are subjected to a useful and penetrating analysis.”—The Aberdeen Free Press.

“ Dr Mellone appears to us to have contributed “Criticism and Construction of pregnant quality, and it will hardly be questioned that modern idealism is the stronger for what he has written.”The Literary World.

“He writes with the modesty and courtesy of the inquirer after lines of rational thought, without self-assertion, and in a way that really helps to elucidate the problems under review.”—The Birming. ham Daily Gazette.

“A mirror of recent English philosophy.”—The Philosophical Review.

"The book shows genuine philosophic thought, and will be the cause of thought in others.”The Pall Mall Gazette.

“ The philosophical student will welcome Dr Mellone's work as an original and up-to-date attempt to re-state some of the most profound and interesting problems suggested by our mental and inoral nature.” -The Belfast Newsletter.
