Were we to express honestly the feeling which a perusal of Mr. Barrett's book has occasioned, it would be a feeling of surprise that he should have made a book out of so little matter. It contains 213 pages, of which only 42 are devoted to the exposition of the new view, the rest of the volume consisting of extracts from different authors who have written upon causation, and of a long index printed in large type. Besides the index, there is a syllabus of contents occupying many pages, and there is a list of the principal works which the author has read or consulted. The type is large, and the text runs as a narrow strip down the page between meadows of margin. By these means, with the help of blank leaves and blank pages, and a very liberal distribution of blank spaces, wherever it was possible to interpolate one, the book has been manufactured. It is a pity that the author did not content himself, at any rate for the present, by putting forth his views in the more fitting form of an article in some journal.
