A series of philosophical papers has been added to the publications of the University of Pennsylvania, under the editorship of Profs. Fullerton and Cattell. The first num- ber of the series is a thick pamphlet by Prof. George Stuart Fullerton, entitled On Sameness and Identity. In the first part of the essay the author enumerates and de- fines at length seven kinds of sameness, and then proceeds to discuss the samenesses of the real self. He states that " men use the word identity to mark certain kinds of same- ness in which there is little or no conscious- ness of duality." A second division of the paper is a critical presentation of the ways in which various philosophers have dealt with sameness.
An essay on Maimonides, giving an ac- count of his philosophy, has been published by Rabbi Louis Grossmann, D. D. (Putnam, 25 cents). In a rough classification Dr. Grossmann would put Maimonides with phi- losophers of religion, since he devoted spe- cial attention to the relation between meta- physics and Jewish theology. While cred- iting Maimonides with great philosophical insight, Dr. Grossmann is not blind to his limitations, and points out several errors which hampered him in common with his contemporaries.
An autobiography of rare interest is pre- sented in The Life of George H. Stitart, written by himself, and edited, at his re- quest, by Prof. Robert Ellis Thompson, of the University of Pennsylvania. Mr. Stuart's life was associated with some of the most exciting events of our recent history. As the editor characterizes his career, it "ex- tends through a memorable half-century of our country's history, and touches more or less closely upon all the great religious and philanthropic movements of that time. While he has not taken any part in political life or sought any eminence in that field, he has been brought into contact with many of our public men, from the anti-slavery group of half a century ago, to Lincoln, Grant, and the national leaders of our own time. . . . On the other hand, he has occupied al- most a unique position in our ecclesiastical
��life, as representing that spirit of unity which has been awakened in the American churches duping and since the war." Mr. Stuart was born in County Down, Ireland, and came to the United States in 1831, when about fif- teen or sixteen years old. In 1836 he heard one of Mr. Gough's temperance addresses, and from that moment became an upholder of every measure for temperance. He was among the first to join the anti-slavery movement. When the question of the union of Presbyterian churches came up, he did his best to advance it. He was instrumental in introducing the Young Men's Christian Association into the United States and iD extending its organization. Early in the civil war he saw a place in the matter of care for the condition of the soldiers which the Sanitary Commission, admirable as its organization was, could not wholly fill, and called the Young Men's Christian Associa- tion to the institution of the Christian Com- mission, and became its president. In this position he was brought into relations with the officers of the Government and the army and with the soldiers. When General Grant was chosen President, Mr. Stuart was given the first invitation to be Secretary of the Treasury. The condition of his health pre- vented his accepting the office, but he was one of President Grant's most trusted coun- selors, and assisted him in his efforts to have the Indians dealt honestly with. He died in March, 1890. His autobiography, besides delineating himself, is a picture of the times in which he lived, and derives further interest from incidental notices of men eminent in the State, the Church, and philanthropy with whom he had rela- tions.
A number of articles and addresses have been published by Prof. Charles S. Mack, M. D., in a small volume under the title Phi- losophy in Homoeopathy (Chicago : Gross & Delbridge). The purpose of the book is to furnish students of homoeopathy and the general public with arguments on which to rest a belief in homoeopathic treatment. One of the chapters is an address to some stu- dents in an allopathic medical college, in which a list of questions submitted by the students are answered. An appendix con- tains an essay on the treatment of criminals, and a discussion of an article by one Do
