Back to Reason is a very short book about a very small town. A hometown. People in Reason still mark a contract by shaking hands. They still turn out for things like high school football games and band concerts. People in Reason arent crazy from the traffic or the noise or the crowding. Crazy people in Reason are just crazy. But theyre OUR crazy people, and we like them that way. Some stories in Back to Reason are belly-laugh funny; others will make you sigh. They all will make you wish that, at the end of the day, you were going hometo Reason.

Originally published in 1922, this book examines legal statutes and their interpretation in English courts during the reigns of Edward I, Edward II and Edward III. Distinguished legal historian Theodore Plucknett presents problems such as mistranslations, ignorance among lawyers and, in some instances, outright refusal by the courts to enforce certain statutes, and how these errors in enforcement changed the role of the government in lawmaking and legal practice. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British legal history.

The selections contained in these volumes from the papers and letters of Leibniz are intended to serve the student in two ways: first, by providing a more adequate and balanced conception of the full range and penetration of Leibniz's creative intellectual powers; second, by inviting a fresher approach to his intellectual growth and a clearer perception of the internal strains in his thinking, through a chronological arrangement. Much confusion has arisen in the past through a neglect of the develop ment of Leibniz's ideas, and Couturat's impressive plea, in his edition of the Opuscu/es et fragments (p. xii), for such an arrangement is valid even for incomplete editions. The beginning student will do well, however, to read the maturer writings of Parts II, III, and IV first, leaving Part I, from a period too largely neglected by Leibniz criticism, for a later study of the still obscure sources and motives of his thought. The Introduction aims primarily to provide cultural orientation and an exposition of the structure and the underlying assumptions of the philosophical system rather than a critical evaluation. I hope that together with the notes and the Index, it will provide those aids to the understanding which the originality of Leibniz's scientific, ethical, and metaphysical efforts deserve.
