Excerpt from the Preface: The book is an attempt at a species of literature which I think has not hitherto had justice done to it, but which I believe to be capable of great things,-- I mean Philosophical Romance. There will at once occur to the reader's mind numerous works of fiction of the highest talent, where philosophical ideas have been introduced with surpassing effect. By Nathaniel Hawthorne this art was carried to such perfection that it is only with difficulty that we perceive how absolutely every character, nay, every word and line, is subordinated to the philosophical idea of the book. There is another kind of philosophical romance, how�ever, which allows the introduction of much which cannot find place in such a work of pure art.
