Logic, or the Art of Reasoning, is very requisite, the foundation of which is Metaphysics, or the Philosophia prima, which, by some, hath been called Ontology, and is the noblest and most elevated part of science. From these general Principles and Laws of Reasoning,we proceed to the Application of them, first in the Study of Quantity in general, whether Number or Magnitude, in the sublimer Mathematics, or the Arts of Computation. And here again opens a noble Scene of eternal Truth, in the demonstration of a vast number of theorems and problems, both Arithmetical and Geometrical, to which Algebra is wonderfully subservient, in the Contemplation both of Lines, Surfaces and Solids, in all their endless Varieties, and Proportions. This will enable us to proceed with the greater Advantage in the Study of Nature; nor without this can we read with Understanding the best Things that have been written on that Subject. This Sort of Study has likewise a direct tendency to lead us to an admiring sense of the Deity, in whole infinite Treasures of eternal Truth, we behold these Connections and Demonstrations, and who has made all Things in Number, Measure, and Weight.--Introduction.
