"Ce n'est pas un défaut que d'avoir le cerveau propre pour imaginer fortement les choses et recevoir des images très distinctes et très vives des objets les moins considérables ; pourvu que l'âme demeure toujours la maîtresse de l'imagination, que ces images s'impriment par ses ordres et qu'elles s'effacent quand il lui plaît, c'est au contraire l'origine de la finesse et la force de l'esprit. Mais lorsque l'imagination domine sur l'âme et que, sans attendre les ordres de la volonté, ces traces se forment par la disposition du cerveau et par l'action des objets et des esprits, il est visible que c'est une très mauvaise qualité et une espèce de folie "

Written seven years after publication of his Search after Truth, Malebranche's Treatise on Ethics develops a detailed, èxperimental' science of ethics in two parts; the ethics of virtue and the ethics of duty. Part One distinguishes six sources of motivation: sense perceptions, passions, imagination, and ìnner feelings' of love as-respect, as-goodwill and as-esteem. He examines how each is to be evaluated. This is interwoven with an Aristotelian analysis of act and habit, and voluntary vs. involuntary acts, and practical reasoning. This part concludes with two basic virtues; t̀he strength of the mind' and f̀reedom of the mind'. Part Two explores our duties to ourselves. to others, to our sovereign, and to God. The translator's introduction discusses the place of Malebranche's ethics within his larger system, his borrowings and innovations, and his impact on later philosophers.

Father Malebranche his treatise concerning the search after truth ... to which is added the author's Treatise of nature and grace, being a consequence of the principles contained in the search : together with his answer to the animadversions upon the first volume, his defence against the accusations of Monsieur De la Ville, &c. relating to the same subject by Nicolas Malebranche( Book )

"It is evident that God can have no other end of acting than Himself; that he cannot create Spirits but to know and love Him that he can neither give them any knowledge, nor impress upon them any love, but what is for, and tends to Himself; but he might have refused to unite our bodies those spirits which He has united. Therefore the relation of our minds to God is natural, necessary, and absolutely indispensable, but their relation to our bodies, though natural, is not of absolute necessity, nor of indispensable obligation. It is not difficulty to make out to attentive persons, and such as are skilled in true philosophy: for they need only be put in mind, that since the will of God regulates the nature of all things, it is more congenial to the nature of the soul to be united with God, that to be united to the body. First, we shall speak of the errors of the senses; secondly of the errors of imagination; thirdly, of the errors of pure intellect; fourthly, of the errors of our inclinations; and fifthly, of the errors of the passions. And thus, having made an essay to rid of the soul of the error which she's subject to, we shall, lastly, lay down a general method to conduct her in the search for truth"
