Críticas The Great Chain of Being employed as a title would have suggested...what was 'probably the most widely familiar conception of the general scheme of things'--the idea of a world in which every being was related to every other in a continuously graded scale with no possible form of diversity missing. Pursuing the biography of this idea through more than two thousand years the distinguished author of these lectures makes clear its amazing influence on the thought and history of the Western World...Intellectual vigor critical precision and an amazing knowledge of what mankind has thought and desired in other ages distinguishes this book. No student of the history of literature science or philosophy may well neglect it. -- Clifford Barrett New York Times Book Review One of the great books of our generation. -- Marjorie Nicolson American Scholar A fascinating and moving book...Everyone interested in the larger ironies of human history should read [it]. -- Ernest Nagel New Republic Men are galvanized by ideas and act as vehicles for them...Such a ruling idea is that of the great chain of being. Prof. Lovejoy's study records the birth the growth the vicissitudes transformations and finally the senility and perhaps the death of this idea. The study is as fascinating as that of the rise and decay of an empire and in fact it is the study of the empire of an idea over human minds throughout many centuries...Prof. Lovejoy's approach is fresh and different...The learning exhibited in this book is vast. -- Raphael Demos Modern Language Notes Reseña del editor From later antiquity down to the close of the eighteenth century most philosophers and men of science and indeed most educated men accepted without question a traditional view of the plan and structure of the world. In this volume which embodies the William James lectures for 1933 Arthur O. Lovejoy points out the three principles-plenitude continuity and graduation-which were combined in this conception; analyzes their origins in the philosophies of Plato Aristotle and the Neoplatonists; traces the most important of their diverse samifications in subsequent religious thought in metaphysics in ethics and aesthetics and in astronomical and biological theories; and copiously illustrates the influence of the conception as a whole and of the ideas out of which it was compounded upon the imagination and feelings as expressed in literature.
