Essays in Freethinking: Volume One



The essays in this collection have all seen the light in that well known but unpopular weekly journal the Freethinker, mostly under the heading of ?Views and Opinions.? They are now reissued in more permanent form, with very little alteration, and in response to many requests that this should be done. Although most of the articles were written around some topical event, it will be found that they treat of those more permanent issues of which passing affairs are so often no more than a reflection. The sole motive in writing them originally was to aid the diffusion of Freethought; and in their present form they have no other purpose to serve.
