Summary
"This books is an English translation of the Examen de Ingenios, originally published in Spanish. All the Ancient Philosophers have found by Experience, that where Nature disposes not a Man for Knowledge, it is in vain for him to labour in the Rules of the Art. But not one of them has clearly and distinctly declared what that Nature is, which renders a Man fit for one, and unfit for another Science, nor what difference of Wit is observed among Men, nor what Arts and Sciences are most suitable to each Man in particular, nor by what Marks they may be discerned, which is of the greatest Importance. These four Points (though seemingly impossible) are contained in the Matter here treated of, besides many other that by the by fall in with this Doctrine, to the intent that curious Fathers may learn the Art and Secret of discovering Wit in their Children, and know how to apply to each the Science in which he shall molt Excel"--Book.
