Please note that some libraries list this 1795 edition in six volumes and some in five. The first collected edition appeared in 1792 in four volumes. This is one of five volumes and does not therefore include the study of animals [Traité des animaux (1755)]. A previous owner has listed the set as five volumes, and another at six volumes.
That said, the set is very handsome: lovely contemporary polished calf with decorated spines, some wear in boards but really a nice set.
Condillac (1714-1780) was a French philosopher and epistemologist, who studied in such areas as psychology and the philosophy of the mind. His major works are here:
Essai sur l'origine des connaissances humaines (1746);
Traité des systèmes (1749);
Traité des sensations (1754).
Anyone knowing John Locke will recognise his influence on the Essai. Condillac keeps close to his English master and accepts with some reluctance Locke's deduction of our knowledge from two sources, sensation and reflection. He uses as his main principle of explanation the association of ideas.
Condillac's Traité des systèmes, is a vigorous criticism of those modern systems which are based upon abstract principles or upon unsound hypotheses. His polemic, which is inspired throughout by Locke, is directed against the innate ideas of the Cartesians.
By far the most important of his works is the Traité des sensations, in which Condillac treats psychology in his own characteristic way. His work on animals is negligible.

Frits BooyI have apologised fully to the buyer and without argument provided a 100% refund including shipping. I find the comment a little harsh, but accept -- as I informed the buyer -- that the mistake was mine. It was of course unintentional. Michael
