PREFACE TO VOL. II.
Or this second volume, as of the first volume, it may be said that it is more a new work than a new edition. The only one of its several divisions which retains substantially its original shape, is Part VI., Special Analysis. In this, such changes of significance as will be found, have arisen by the addition of §§ 302-305, showing that the subject-matter of Logic is objective, and by the further developments given to the chapters on "The Perception of Body as Presenting Statical Attributes," "The Perception of Space," and "The Perception of Motion,"-developments by which the doctrine set forth in those chapters, has been more fully harmonized with the Doctrine of Evolution. Part VIII., General Analysis, though it contains fragments of the Part which bore that title in the First Edition, is mainly new in substance and wholly new in organization ; and to Part IX., Corollaries, there was nothing answering in the First Edition. In round numbers, 350 pages of fresh matter are added to 300 pages of matter that has appeared before.
The instalments of which this volume consists, were issued to the subscribers at the following dates :-No. 27 (pp. 1-80) in March, 1871; No. 28 (pp. 81-160) in April, 1871; No. 29 (pp. 161-240) in June, 1871; No. 30 (pp. 241-320) in July, 1871; No. 31 (pp. 321-400) in October, 1871; No. 32 (pp. 401-480) in February, 1872; No. 33 (pp. 481-560) in June, 1872; and No. 34 (pp. 561-648) in October, 1872.
