(1) A COMPILATION of Christian Wolff's definitions, by the professor of philosophy at Göttingen. Dr. Baumann made this compilation many years ago, for his own needs, purposely confining himself to the problem of the theory of knowledge. Recently, when re-reading Kant's “Kritik der reinen Vernunft,” he took up his compilation and recognised the parallelism with Wolff. This little book is therefore now published as a help to the study of Kant. It contains useful definitions, with references, of terms such as Empfindung, Vorstellung, Wahrnehmung, Idee, Begriff, which are the chief elementary difficulties in the way of the student of Kant, and of German philosophical writers in general.
