Editorial Reviews

Book Description

In 1862, philosopher Herbert Spencer published this preamble to a planned series of publications on biology, psychology, sociology and morality. In it, he argues that religion and science can be reconciled in the underlying unity from which the visible complexity of the universe has evolved. --This text refers to the Printed Access Code edition.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By noos on July 29, 2011
Format: Paperback
Expansive thought, driven by the engine of evolution, with fascinating insights and conclusions. This book examines the limitations and virtues of religion and science concurrently. Each contributes in their conclusions, with their interpretations, to what is reality. "What is" is the starting point. Likewise, Spencer combines the meaning of each to give understanding to which they aim. Terrific. ...Dave Mills

My 19-year old daughter had been wanting this book since she was about 15...finally found it for her Christmas blessings this year. She reported to me that First Principles is a MUST read (can you tell that we're avid readers in our family?!). This book is on my immediate weekend reading list.

The book was in excellent condition and shipping arrived earlier than expected. Thank you so very much!

Format: Paperback
I have two Herbert Spencer works including "the Principles of Psychology". I would not recommend any books by this man. His writing is pretentiously grandiose and often based on his personal idle reflections on the subject matter he is discussing. He is typically Victorian in the naive and grandiose approach to simple thoughts. His writings are pseudo-intellectual and out-of-date.
