"This treatise on natural religion examines the following questions: (i) is there really any such thing as natural religion, properly and truly so called? (ii) if there is, what is it? and (iii) how may a man qualify himself, so as to be able to judge, for himself, of the other religions professed in the world; to settle his own opinions in disputable matters; and then to enjoy tranquility of mind, neither disturbing others, nor being disturbed at what passes among them? In addition, the nature of moral good and evil is a theme that is advanced throughout the papers appearing in this book"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
