Abstract:

"The following work upon the Passions obtained great success in France. It has likewise extended its fame into Germany. Its great aim is to show that the passions tend to embitter the happiness of individuals, and to disturb the peace of nations. She considers the very essence of passion to consist in its violence; passion under the dominion of reason is no passion at all. She demonstrates that mankind ought to endeavour to avoid as much as possible the influence of the passions; that is, bring themselves to that state of philosophical apathy when they can think without enthusiasm, and act without impulse. The reasoning by which this doctrine is supported will be found to possess uncommon ingenuity, the movements of the heart are laid open with a masterly hand, and the origin of our feelings and sentiments carefully traced"--Book.
