About the Author

Herbert Spencer (1820-1903) was an English philosopher, political theorist, sociological theorist, author, and editor. He served in the later capacity for the "Economist" from 1843 to 1853. He is perhaps best known for applying evolutionary theory to social development and coined the term "survival of the fittest." His best known works are "Man versus the State" and the multi-volume "System of Synthetic Philosophy".

Given the "all but unusable" comment by another reviewer, I thought I would point out the positives of the updated work. It has both a linked TOC, as indicated in its title, and is replete with images. In its current state it is far, far away from unusable. I would also point out that there are other releases that have no TOC, or have no images. At lease one of those is (currently) greater than four times the price of this release.

Based on the several releases of this work from various Kindle publishers I easily rate this one as the best I have seen. I look forward to spending some time with it.

Although this is one of the greatest books ever written on the subjects of psychology and the philosophy of mind, the Kindle edition is all but unusable. There is no table of contents, interactive or otherwise. Without a way to navigate through this very lengthy book, the printed version will still be king.

I was reading the Dover edition of this book when I bought my Kindle, so I actually have both hardcopy and digital versions to compare.

I'm grateful to the publishers for making this book available to Kindle readers at this low price. (I see there's another edition available for four times as much, but haven't tried it.)

However, there are problems with this edition which make it a little difficult to read.

For one thing, there is a Table of Contents, but you have to go back to page 1 and then "turn' the page forward to get to it. (Table of Contents is not enabled on the "Go to" Menu button.)

But you really wouldn't use the chapter headings that often, I think. What I mainly want to do is find out how long a chapter is - how many pages are left before I'll have finished it - and the TOC doesn't help you do this since there are no page numbers on the TOC.

The publisher has actually embedded the original hardcopy page numbers in the text - for example, the place in the text where p. 216 (of the paperback Dover edition) starts has [p.216] embedded in this Kindle edition. So, if James refers to something he says on a previous page, you can search it.

A second problem (and probably the most problematical) is the number of typos. The digital scanner messes up - well, I wouldn't say a whole lot, but enough to be annoying and at rare times to interfere with my understanding of the book.

There are lots of "fin" when it should be "fill," "me" when it should be "we." Many places that should be italicized aren't, and many words are italicized that shouldn't be. Sometimes a word is left out: for ex., right between pp.94-95 of Vol.

the book itself is very classy and well stated, it may be better to have chapters in the digital version, but for this little charge, it is great worth to have it.
