Observations on man, his frame, his duty, and his expectations by David Hartley( Book )

131 editions published between 1749 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The orphaned son of an Anglican clergyman, David Hartley (1705-57) was originally destined for holy orders. Declining to subscribe to the Thirty-Nine Articles, he turned to medicine and science yet remained a religious believer. This, his most significant work, provides a rigorous analysis of human nature, blending philosophy, psychology and theology. First published in two volumes in 1749, Observations on Man is notable for being based on the doctrine of the association of ideas. It greatly influenced scientists, theologians, social reformers and poets: Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who named his eldest son after Hartley, had his portrait painted while holding a copy. Volume 2 is particularly concerned with human morality and the duty and expectations of mankind. Here the author is keen to show that scientific observation is not necessarily in conflict with religious conviction

"The work here offered to the public consists of papers written at different times, but taking their rise from the following occasion. About eighteen years ago I was informed that the Rev. Mr. Gay asserted the possibility of deducing all our intellectual pleasures and pains from association. This put me upon considering the power of association. Mr. Gay published his sentiments on this matter, about the same time, in a dissertation on the Fundamental Principle of Virtue, prefixed to Mr. Archdeacon Law's translation of Archbishop King's Origin of Evil. From inquiring into the power of association I was led to examine both its consequences, in respect of morality and religion, and its physical cause. By degrees many dispositions foreign to the doctrine of association, or or at least, not immediately connected with it, intermixed themselves. I have here put together all my separate papers on these subjects, digesting them in such order as they seemed naturally to suggest, and adding such things as were necessary to make the whole appear more complete and systematical. It has long been the opinion of all the admirer's of Dr. David Hartley among my acquaintance, as well as my own, that is Observations on Man could not have failed to have been more generally read and his theory of the human mind to have prevailed, if it had been made more intelligible; and if the work had not been clogged with a whole system of moral and religious knowledge; which, however excellent, is, in a great measure, foreign to it. Both these obstacles it is my object in this publication to remove; by exhibiting his theory of the human mind, as far as it relates to the doctrine of association of ideas"--Preface.
