Observations on the Zoonomia of Erasmus Darwin, M.D. by Thomas Brown( )

33 editions published between 1798 and 2018 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The system of life, which forms the groundwork of Zoonomia, is marked by the fame bold originality of thought, that distinguished the theoretical part of the Botanic Garden. The field of conjecture, and, consequently, of error, appears to be less; as the changes of life are not distant, like those, which elevated our mountains, or gave motion to the planetary system. They continually take place, before us: and, together with those experiments, of which every one may himself be the subject, Dr. Darwin has enjoyed the peculiar opportunities of observation, which long, and extensive medical practice affords. But it is the lot of theorists, to be satisfied with less evidence of their own opinions, than of those of others; and opportunities of observation, though they greatly aid us, in discovering the errors of any other system, are, therefore, in general, insufficient, to show us the futility of our own. Some perceived relation must always precede opinion; but it is often founded on flight analogies, and induction is afterwards made, more to support, than to try its validity. The phenomena are viewed, in the light, in which we wish them to appear, rather than in that, in which nature presents them; and inconsistencies are thus unnoticed, which readily occur to him, who has no other interest in a work, than as it adds to his store of truths. Some of these inconsistencies, which the author of Zoonomia has not been able to avoid, in the leading principles of his theory, and in the explanations, founded on them, it is the object of the following pages, to point out. If, in reviewing Dr. Darwin's system, I have sometimes been obliged to point out its ridiculous consequences, I trust, it will not be imputed to disrespectful, but to the peculiar nature of hypothetical reasoning, When the existence of a substance is affirmed, it is often impossible, to prove, by direct argument, that the supposed substance does not exist, and the only remaining mode of confutation is to take its existence, for granted, and state the absurdities, to which it leads. But I should, indeed, be ill qualified, to judge of the merits of Zoonomia, if I could be guilty of disrespect: to its ingenious author, by whom I have been often instructed, and always delighted"--Preface.

Inquiry into the relation of cause and effect by Thomas Brown( Book )

46 editions published between 1818 and 2013 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scottish philosopher Thomas Brown (1778-1820) held the chair of moral philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. He was distinguished for his work in the philosophy of mind and causation, and was a founder member of the Edinburgh Review. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, controversy arose over John Leslie being appointed to the chair of mathematics at the university. City ministers opposed him because he defended Hume's view of causation, which was seen as being incompatible with the existence of God. In 1805 Brown wrote a pamphlet, Observations on the Nature and Tendency of the Doctrine of Mr. Hume Concerning the Relation of Cause and Effect, which among other things aimed to show that Hume's theory was compatible with belief in God. This book, first published in 1818, is the third edition of that original pamphlet, which grew to become a thorough examination of the philosophy of causation

The Philosophy of the Human Mind, in its fullest extent, may be regarded as comprehensive of many sciences. Such are the various lights in which the human mind may be regarded: physiologically, ethically, politically, theologically. It is thus the object of many sciences, --but of sciences that, even when they seem most remote, have still one tie of intimate connection, in the common relation, which they all directly bear to the series of feelings of the inquirer himself.--Introduction.
