James Mill : Analysis of the Phenomena of the Human Mind

'The study of Metaphysics and Mental Philosophy in general had always been one of the favourite pursuits of George Grote. In the winter of 1829, a small group of students in this branch of knowledge resumed the habit begun two years previous, of meeting at George Grote's house on two mornings of the week, at half past eight A.M. 'They read Mr. Mill's last work, "Analysis of the Phenomena of the Human Mind," Hartley on Man, Dutrieux's Logic, Whately's works, &c., discussing as they proceeded.. Mr. John Stuart Mill, Mr. Charles Buller, Mr. Eyton Tooke [...] Mr. John Arthur Roebuck, Mr. G. J. Graham, Mr. Grant, and Mr. W. G. Prescott formed part of this class. Mr. George Grote was always present at their meetings, which lasted an hour, or an hour and a half, as time served.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: George Grote, J. S. Mill, Eyton Tooke, Charles Buller, J. A. Roebuck, G. J. Johnson and others     Print: Book
