Excerpt: If my object in these pages were to present a complete scheme of counsels and maxims for the guidance of life, I should have to repeat the numerous rules?some of them excellent?which have been drawn up by thinkers of all ages, from Theognis and Solomon[1] down to La Rochefoucauld; and, in so doing, I should inevitably entail upon the reader a vast amount of well?worn commonplace. But the fact is that in this work I make still less claim to exhaust my subject than in any other of my writings....

Excerpt: THE name Dialectic was, as we are informed by Diogenes Laertius, first used by Plato; and in the Phaedrus, Sophist, Republic, bk. vii., and elsewhere, we find that by Dialectic he means the regular employment of the reason, and skill in the practice of it. Aristotle also uses the word in this sense; but, according to Laurentius Valla, he was the first to use Logic too in a similar way.{footnote 1} Dialectic, therefore, seems to be an older word than Logic. Cicero and Quintilian use the words in the same general signification.{footnote 2} {(Footnote 1.) He speaks of duochereiai logikai, that is, ?difficult points,? protasis logike, aporia logike.} {(Footnote 2.) Cic. in Lucullo: Dialecticam inventam esse, veri et falsi quasi disceptatricem. Topica, c. 2: Stoici enim judicandi vias diligenter persecuti sunt, ea scientia, quam Dialecticen appellant. Quint., lib. ii., 12: Itaque haec pars dialecticae, sive illam disputatricem dicere malimus; and with him this latter word appears to be the Latin equivalent for Dialectic.

Excerpt: BY the ancients, Logic and Dialectic were used as synonymous terms; although logizesthai, ?to think over, to consider, to calculate,? and dialegesthai, ?to converse,? are two very different things. The name Dialectic was, as we are informed by Diogenes Laertius, first used by Plato; and in the Phaedrus, Sophist, Republic, bk. vii., and elsewhere, we find that by Dialectic he means the regular employment of the reason, and skill in the practice of it. Aristotle also uses the word in this sense; but, according to Laurentius Valla, he was the first to use Logic too in a similar way.{footnote 1} Dialectic, therefore, seems to be an older word than Logic.

Introduction: In these pages I shall speak of The Wisdom of Life in the common meaning of the term, as the art, namely, of ordering our lives so as to obtain the greatest possible amount of pleasure and success; an art the theory of which may be called Eudaemonology, for it teaches us how to lead a happy existence. Such an existence might perhaps be defined as one which, looked at from a purely objective point of view, or, rather, after cool and mature reflection?for the question necessarily involves subjective considerations,?would be decidedly preferable to non?existence; implying that we should cling to it for its own sake, and not merely from the fear of death; and further, that we should never like it to come to an end....
