Excerpt from Concord Lectures on Philosophy, Comprising Outlines of All the Lectures at the Concord Summer School of Philosophy in 1882: With an Historical Sketch In the "Orchard House" in Concord, Mass., in the room now the study of Dr. William T. Harris, began on July 15, 1879, the first term of the Concord Summer School of Philosophy. It was well attended and was received with much favor, more even than had been expected for so novel an enterprise. As a result, more ample accommodations were secured for 1880. Upon the hillside, only a few steps from the "Orchard House," was erected the plain but convenient structure known as "Hillside Chapel." For this purpose was taken a part of a fund of a thousand dollars given by Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson of New York City for the general use of the school. An audience of a hundred and fifty can be accommodated in the chapel, and among the ornaments within are busts of Plato, Pestalozzi, Ralph Waldo Emerson and A. Bronson Alcott. A mask of Anaxagoras hangs upon the wall, and over the mantel is an engraving of the "School of Athens." Other engravings and photographs, which are changed from time to time, complete the list. Upon a low platform, in a wide alcove, stands the table at which the lecturers sit. Movable camp chairs and unpainted wooden chairs, arranged rather for comfort than in geometrical figures, furnish the seats of the audience. The "Orchard House" was for many years the home of Mr. Alcott. Here is the chamber where Louisa M. Alcott's "Little Women" was written; here are the scenes haunted by the "Little Women" and "Little Men"; here is the chamber occupied by May Alcott with her sketches of Flaxman's graceful figures, still sacredly preserved by Dr. Harris, as they cover doors, panels, window-sills and casings. Down-stairs is the room once used for her study, whose upper part was cut off for a room for the "Little Men." Under this roof are joined two houses, - one two hundred years old and the other one hundred and fifty. Next to this house comes, on the road to Lexington, the house which was formerly the home of Nathaniel Hawthorne, "The Wayside," and is now occupied by his son-in-law, Mr. George Parsons Lathrop. The officers of the school from the beginning have been Mr. A. Bronson Alcott, dean, Mr. S. H. Emery, Jr., director, and Mr. F. B. Sanborn, secretary. These three, with Dr. William T. Harris and Dr. H. K. Jones, constitute the faculty. During the lectures the speaker sits at the table; Mr. Emery calls the company to order, presides during the discussion which follows for an hour or more after the lecture, and declares the session ended. The discussion is in a friendly tone, and bitter argument is unknown. Opinions are offered and sustained by reasons, but no attempt is made to reach a verdict. In arranging lectures for a term the faculty endeavor to preserve, but within limits, however, which permit much freedom, a unity in the philosophical courses. Single lectures are then introduced in order to show the connection of philosophy with literature, art and nature.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
