Page vi - ... conclusion is geometrically in close connexion with the first cause, is very different from that which it receives from putting in play the long train of machinery in a profound analytical process. The degrees of conviction in the two cases are very different. It is known to every one who has been engaged in the instruction of students at our Universities, that the results of the differential calculus are received by many, rather with the doubts of imperfect faith than with the confidence of...
