Publication life cycle / General notes

Preface signed New College, Edinburgh, July 1957.  Preached in Scots, translated to English by Torrance.  “I was brought up on them at home… fuller study on the urgent recommendation of Professor H. R. Mackintosh” (Preface, 7).  A “new translation” which “does not do justice to the vigour and power of the old Scots speech” (Preface, 8).  “I have taken the liberty of rearranging clauses and sentences again and again to bright out more clearly the logic of the argument…” (Preface, 9).
