IT

T was said of one of the ancients-I think

it was Socrates, or his disciple Plato that he brought Philosophy down from heaven, to dwell among men upon earth.

The same may, in some measure, be affirmed of all those who successfully endeavour to render the Arts and SCIENCES, which were formerly wrapt up in the learned languages, and in technical terms, intelligible to the bulk of mankind, or to those who have not had the advantage of a liberal education.

[blocks in formation]

Such was, no doubt, the design of Dr. Turner in the present publication ; and if he did not render it more copious and comprehensive, it was neither for want of inclination nor ability, but merely from a desire of confining the size of the book, as well as its price, within as narrow limits as possible.

He intended however, had he lived, to have made many additions to the present impression. These he proposed chiefly to introduce in the article of Physics or Na. tural Philosophy, convinced, that what he had already said on Metaphysics and Moral Philosophy was as much as was necessary or proper for those, for whose use the book was expressly composed.

As the Editor had an opportunity of being perfectly acquainted with the Doctor's sentiments in these particulars, he has endeavoured to execute his intentions in the best manner he could.
