"The Science of Human Nature is, like all other Sciences, reduced to a few, clear points; There are not many certain Truths in this World. It is therefore in the Anatomy of the Mind, as in that of the Body, more Good will accrue to mankind by attending to the large, open, and perceptible parts, than by studying too much such finer nerves and vessels as will for ever escape our observation. The Essay on Man, to use the Author's own words, is a perfect system of ethics, in which definition he included religion. hence it is that the first Epistle regards man with respect to the Lord and governor of the universe; as the second, with respect to himself; the third, to society, and the fourth to happiness. Having therefore formed and finished his Essay in this view, he was much mortified whenever he found it considered in any other; or as a part and introduction only to a larger work. Concerning the universal prayer, which concludes the Essay, the author composed that prayer as the sum of all, to show that his system was founded in free will and terminated in piety. This edition includes numerous responses and answers to Pope's Essay on man"--Livre. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)

"In this merciless attack on eighteenth-century society, Alexander Pope expertly satirses the blind reliance on false learning that was then so prevalent. By taking one ambitious father and his determination to do everything in his power to produce a child of genius, Pope exposes the true folly of the men of his age and their absurd veneration of the ancients. And as this hallowed child grows into a man, it becomes clear that instead of being the scholar his father so desired, he is simply the inevitable offspring of a laughable generation of pseudo-intellecturals and literati" --cover
