Principles of nature, or, A development of the moral causes of happiness and misery among the human species by Elihu Palmer( Book )

81 editions published between 1801 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first edition of this work having met with a more rapid fail than was expected, the author has been induced to accelerate the publication of the second. In this edition there are five new chapters, viz. the 13, 19, 20, 21, and 26. The whole of which is now presented to the public, with a most ardent desire that it may serve to strengthen the great cause of moral virtue, and extend, in some small degree, the empire of human felicity. The establishment of theological systems, claiming divine origin, has been among the most destructive causes by which the life of man has been afflicted. The new chapters contained in this edition, are intended to awaken a spirit of philosophic inquiry, in every description of adherents to the ancient regimen, and to induce them to pass once more in review the religious theories to which they have been so strongly attached. The principal design of the author through the whole of this work, has been to give to moral principle, a basis as durable as time, and as immortal as the specific succession of human existence, and to sender the sentiment of virtue, as far as possible, independent of all the theological reveries of antiquity"--Preface.
