First and only edition of a collection of papers about whether animals can be said to possess the power of 'reason', edited and introduced by the Leipzig scientist and friend of J.S. Bach, Johann Heinrich Winckler (1703-70). The contributors are Johann Gottlob Werner, Martin Gottlieb Pauli, Ernst Salomon Hausdorf, Christoph Jeremias Rost, Benjamin Groddeck, Christlieb Traugott Bierling, Christhold Mylius (Lessing's cousin), Carl Gottlob von Penzig, Johann Christian Körner, Ernst Christian Wagner and Friedrich Heinrich Wagner. Their consensus, against the Cartesians, is that certain animals must be called reasonable creatures because (a) they can connect one judgement with another, (b) they sometimes plan for the future, (c) they use a sort of language, and (d) they seem to exhibit some kind of moral sensibility. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Small 8vo, title vignette of a bear in the wilderness, 93 pp., plain twentieth-century binding, some spotting and browning, a sound copy of a very scarce book.
