"I purpose to treat this subject in the following manner. First, I shall endeavor to trace the several kinds of Evidence and Reasoning up to their first principles; with a view to ascertain the Standard of Truth, and explain immutability. Secondly, I shall show that my sentiments on this head, however inconsistent with the genius of scepticism, and with the practice and principles of sceptical writers, are yet perfectly consistent with the genius of true philosophy, and with the practice and principles of those who are universally allowed to have been the most successful in the investigation of truth: concluding with some inferences or rules; by which the more important fallacies of the sceptical philosophy may be detected by every person of common sense, even though he should not possess acuteness or metaphysical knowledge sufficient to qualify him for a logical confutation of them. Thirdly, I shall answer some objections; and make some remarks, by way of Estimate of Scepticism and sceptical writers. I divide my discourse in this manner, chiefly with a view to the reader's accommodation. An exact arrangement of parts is necessary to confer elegance on a whole; but I am more studious of utility than of elegance. And though my sentiments might have been exhibited in a more systematic order; I am apt to think, that the order in which they first occurred to me is the most natural, and may be the most effectual for accomplishing my purpose"--Book.
