THE ALTERNATIVE

A STUDY IN PSYCHOLOGY

“We fools of Nature."-Hamlet.

“ Our bodies are our gardens to the which our wills are gardeners, so that if we
will plant nettles or sow lettuce, set hyssop and weed up thyme, supply it with one
gender of herbs or distract it with many, either to have it sterile with idleness or
manured with industry, why, the power and corrigible authority of this lies in our
wills."- Othello.

The Author of The Alternative is indebted to Mr. Henry Sidgwick for the following opinion of the work communicated in a letter to the Editor :

“ I have had an unexpected interim of enforced cessation from my work, which I have employed in reading about half the proof-sheets you sent me. Without reading any morewhich for the present I have not time to do—I feel no doubt that the book deserves the attention of all students of philosophy, from the amount of vigorous, precise, and independent thinking that it contains thinking which appears to me generally consistent so far as it has been completely developed, though at some important points the work of definition and analysis does not seem to me to have been carried far enough. I also find the terse forcible individuality of the style attractive on the whole, though I cannot but wish that the Author had somewhat restrained his impulse to innovate in technical terminology."
