Quote from ‘A Syllabus of Certain Topics of Logic’
By “science of review” is meant the business of those who occupy themselves with arranging the results of discovery, beginning with digests, and going on to endeavor to form a philosophy of science. Such is the nature of Humboldt’s Kosmos, of Comte’s Philosophie positive, and of Spencer’s Synthetic Philosophy. The classification of the sciences belongs to this department.
