Definition of disquisition:
- "A Candid Examination of Theism", George John Romanes.
In 1776 he said, " I have found it of importance and highly expedient to yield to many points in fact, without seeming to have done it, and this to avoid bringing on a too frequent discussion of matters which in a political view ought to be kept a little behind the curtain, and not to be made too much the subjects of disquisition.- "The True George Washington [10th Ed.]", Paul Leicester Ford.
- "Charlotte's Inheritance", M. E. Braddon.
