As a result of several summers' investigation in London, Dr. Rand has recently published a volume entitled: "The Life, Unpublished Letters, and Philosophical Regimen of Anthony, Third Earl of Shaftesbury." The book is printed by Swan, Sonnenschein & Co., of London and reissued in this country by MacMillan Company. After the author's Introduction comes the sketch of the life of Shaftesbury, written by his son. The letters, that follow, are of considerable literary and historical value, helping, as they do, to build up a pleasing impression of the Queen Anne Moralist, as well as throwing light upon an interesting period of English history. The chief value of the publication, however, centers in the Philosophical Regimen, a new presentation of Stoic philosophy. In speaking of its author, Dr. Rand writes that he is the greatest stoic since the days of Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius and that into his own life he wrought the stoical "virtue for virtue's sake."
