Excerpt from Essays and Treatises on Several Subjects, Vol. 2

Most of the principles, and reafonings, con tained in this volume, were publilhed in a work in three volumes, called A Treatye of Human Nature A work which the Author had projected before he left College, and which he wrote and publifhed not long after. But not finding it fuccefsful, he was fenfible of his error in going to the prefs too early, and he cafl the whole anew in the following pieces, where fome negligences in his former rea foning, and more in the exprefiion, are, he hopes, corrected. Yet feveral writers, who have honoured the Author's Philofophy with anfwers, have taken care to direct all their batteries againl't that juve nile work, which the Author never acknowledged, and have affected _to triumph in any advantages, which, they imagined, they had obtained over it A practice very contrary to all rules of candour and fair-dealing, and a {trong inl'tance of thofe pole mical artifices, which a bigotted zeal thinks itfelf authorifed to employ. Henceforth, the Author defires, that the following Pieces may alone be te garded as containing his philofophical fentiments and principles.
