1903. Alexander Bain, Scottish philosopher and educationalist, was an early proponent of scientific psychology. Along with his friend, John Stuart Mill, Bain was a major proponent of the British school of empiricism: a theory which based all knowledge on basic sensory experiences and not on introspection. Bain's philosophical and scientific writings were completed during his twenty years as a professor at Aberdeen. This volume contains a collection of Bain's discourses on the following: The Meaning of Existence and Descarte's Cogito; Of Moral Causation; Mill's Theory of the Syllogism; Association Controversies; On Some Points in Ethics; Is There Such a Thing as Pure Malevolence? (Mr. Bradley); Is There Such a Thing as Pure Malevolence? Reply to Mr. Bradley's Objections; Definition and Demarcation of the Subject-Sciences; The Empiricist Position; Physiological Expression in Psychology; Pleasure and Pain; Definition and Problems of Consciousness; The Respective Spheres and Mutual Helps of Introspection and Psycho-Physical Experiment in Psychology; The Scope of Anthropology, and Its Relation to the Science of Mind; and On the Pressure of Examinations.
