THE materials which the author had prepared for this book were found greatly to exceed the limits assigned to it. He has therefore, besides other parts of his plan to which special reference need not here be made, been compelled to leave out the account of Spinoza's life and letters, and to confine the work to an examination of his philosophical system. This is the less to be regretted that the life has been so fully narrated in the recent works of Mr Pollock and Dr Martineau. These works contain, also, very able and elaborate expositions of the Spinozistic philosophy, but this book attempts to deal with that philosophy from a point of view different from that of either of these writers.

by Bertrand Russell - Project Gutenberg
This classic work is an approachable introduction to the theory of philosophical enquiry. It gives Russell's views on distinction between appearance and reality, the existence and nature of matter, idealism, induction, and the limits of knowledge.
by Edgar Saltus - Houghton Mifflin Company
This book is a refreshing, unique look at the nature of life, told from a Schopenhauerian perspective. Saltus makes the point that this is far from being the 'best of all possible worlds.' Rather, life is a grievous burden to be borne.
