In the past — if you look at David Hume or Thomas Reid in the 18th century, for example — there was no distinction between philosophy and psychology. This air is likewise decomposed by dephlogisticated nitrous acid, which by this means becomes phlogisticated. So roughly half the readings come from those books.
