A later printing of this work. Complete in three volumes. A collection of essays reflecting on the intellectual powers of the brain by Scottish philosopher Thomas Reid. Discussing elements of the human intellect such as memory, senses, the will, and morals among others. In uniform full calf bindings. 

Thomas Reid was a contemporary to David Hume, critical of his work. He was mainly known for his epistemology as well as for his views in the theory of action and the metaphysics of personal identity.
