DR. SALEEBY discusses the problems of philosophy from the Spencerian standpoint in an interesting fashion. Of the three volumes, that on Psychology appears much the best; it is the most serious, and though the author has there one bête noire in the person of Dr. Ward, who suffers vicariously for all the sins of “academic psychology,” the reader is not wearied, as in the Ethics volume, by incessant declamation against Nietzscheanism, on the one hand, and what is politely called “hell-fire morality” on the other.
