Written seven years after publication of his Search after Truth, Malebranche's Treatise on Ethics develops a detailed, `experimental' 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 `inner 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; `the strength of the mind' and `freedom 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. Craig Walton is Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Institute for Ethics and Policy Studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas

"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"--Preface.
