His chief philosophical work

First edition of this "magnum opus in associationist psychology and philosophy of mind" (ODNB) by the father of John Stuart Mill; an attractively bound set.

In the Analysis, which Mill began work on in 1822, he "maintains that the human mind is a store of 'associations' of ideas derived from experience (for example, between 'burn' and 'fire'). Reasoning, remembering, and other mental phenomena consist of calling up and recombining these associations. The purpose of education is to instil and reinforce the right sorts of associations" (ibid.).
