Note de publication
John Slater, in his "Minerva's aviary: Philosophy at Toronto, 1843-1870", wrote (p. 86): "Reid's argument is given in outline form, and Beaven's comments are indicated as either 'notes', 'observations', or 'objections'. 'Notes' appear with regularity; the other two types of intervention are less frequent. When an 'objection' is recorded, it always followed by an 'answer'. The impression gained from reading these class notes is that philosophy is a settled subject; Beaven seemed to think of it as very like the settled theology of his Church."
