Very Good+ or better cloth volume in dust jacket. "By means of a detailed exposition of the writings of Bacon, Milton, Hobbes, Jeremy Taylor, and several others among the Puritans, the Scientists, and the Cambridge Platonists, this study develops a new version of the so-called 'dissociation of sensibility' which is said to have occurred in the seventeenth century. This version lays stress on the Hebrew factor, in particular the Hebrew Covenant-doctrine, as a key to the ideological conflicts of that age." 301 pages. Octavo.
