I have been content to give a brief outline of my
views concerning these points, and have put them
forward in such a way as to show as clearly as was in
my power the various topics and kinds of arguments.
Others have dealt with the subject at greater length,
preferring to deal with the whole subject of commonplaces and to show how each topic may be treated.
