Reading Experience:

"Dr Carpenter was inclined also to the study of philosophy,and wrote on it,-on mental and moral philosophy;and this was enough,putting all predisposition out of the question,to determine me to the study. He was of the Locke and Hartley school altogether, as his articles on 'Mental and Moral Philosophy' in Ree's Encyclopedia,and his work on 'Systemic Education' show."
