Summary
  • "This Autobiography is published as it was left by Mr. Spencer, with a few modifications, the most important of which relates to the division of the volumes. It was Mr. Spencer's original intention that the first volume should end with Chapter XlXa. His reason was thus stated in a letter to his American publishers : "The first volume ends my engineering and miscellaneous life, and the second volume begins my literary life." This, he said, was a "natural division." But in order to obviate the very great inequality in thickness that would have thus existed between the two volumes, we, his trustees, in the exercise of our discretion, have ventured to adopt another "natural division," making the first volume end with the termination of his miscellaneous work and the second volume begin with the planning of the Synthetic Philosophy"--Book.

  • "It has seemed to me that a natural history of myself would be a useful accompaniment to the books which it has been the chief occupation of my life to write. In the following chapters I have attempted to give such a natural history. That I have fully succeeded is not to be supposed; but perhaps I have succeeded partially. At any rate, one significant truth has been made clear--that in the genesis of a system of thought the emotional nature is a large factor: perhaps as large a factor as the intellectual nature"--Preface.
