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

71 editions published between 1801 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The establishment of theological systems, claiming divine origin, has been among the most destructive causes by which the life of man has been afflicted. History furnishes an awful picture of the sad and fatal effects of fanaticism among the nations of the earth; but history furnishes only the exterior; there is a deeper internal wound, which superstition has inflicted in the bosom of society, subversive of all moral sympathy and the fairest traits in the character of man. The sincerity with which many upright minds are attached to the Christian religion, can form no substantial objection against an unqualified investigation into its truth or falsehood. If it be founded in truth, it will stand the test of every examination--it will stand the test of all future ages, and become immortal. It is a point of justice to observe, that this work has been written under the misfortune and embarrassment of a total loss of sight"--Preface.

8 editions published between 1801 and 1830 in English and held by 36 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.
