The Rise of Intellectual Liberty from Thales to Copernicus




Henry Holt & Company




New York






1st edition






From the author's "Preface:"

"Wishing to show how thought was set free and new truth brought to light, during the twenty-two hundred years from the age of Thales to that of Copernicus and Servetus, I have tried to collect the important facts, especially such as had not been stated in English, to arrange them in their historic relations, not yet fully delineated in any language, and then to let them tell their own story, without needless comment."

"I did not start with the intention of proving anything; and it was only when I was ready to write the last chapter, that I found myself justified in drawing the conclusions set forth."

 Authorities differ widely, especially about medieval history, and dates of publication are often given incorrectly-that, for instance of the Involuntary Servitude by La Boetie being put in half-a-dozen different years by as many of the standard books of reference. Oversights are almost unavoidable in any comprehensive work, and I shall be grateful for help in correcting my own, but I trust I shall not be hastily charged with inaccuracy on account of not having followed a popular guide. I hope erelong to publish a continuation extending as far as the French Revolution "
