Summary
"Experience in lecturing on Philosophy has convinced me that students learn far more by reading a standard work than by studying a handbook. The first chapter of 'The History of European Morals' is in every way suitable both to students who are beginning to attend a course of lectures and to those who are wise enough to pursue some branch of liberal culture in their hours of leisure. I often wished that it could be had in an inexpensive form with some help in the way of introduction and notes, and Mr. Lecky has very kindly given me permission to make use of this valuable chapter. I have therefore attempted to give a preliminary survey of English Ethics in order that the student may be able to understand the text without the labour and expense of consulting bulky volumes of philosophy. This labour would be unprofitable to a beginner. Mr. Lecky has pursued the first method, and I have tried to bring his work into the hands of those who wish to learn and to think"--Preface.
