A Brief Textbook Of Logic And Mental Philosophy
1891. The Catholic Review offers the following recommendation: Those who are acquainted with Father Coppens' textbooks of Rhetoric and Oratorical Composition, will be prepared to find in this new work of his a model of order and thoroughness, combined with an attractive style, and they will not be disappointed. The treatment of logic in its dialectic side is the best brief statement for school use that we have yet seen in English. the critical side of the logic is compendious, but by no means dry. The latter two-thirds of the work is devoted to mental philosophy. The views of the Stonyhurst Manuals are reflected in this book, only that the American Jesuit has systematized the matter in a way to make all teachers grateful to him.
