Jevons was designed as a response to the simple question: What is philosophy? Consisting of five separate lectures, the work throws light on the themes of philosophy and science, materialism and idealism, scepticism, practical philosophy, and the notion of the whole and its parts. The aim of the study was not simply to provide an answer to the question in the title, but to bring out the meaning of the question itself and to demonstrate the inherent utilitarian significance of philosophy to everyone. As Jevons notes in the preface, Philosophy is a concern of the average man and of practical life, and should not be the monopoly of the professed student.
