Robert Burton (1577-1640). "Robert Burton went up to Oxford in 1593 and in 1599 was elected to a studentship at Christ Church where he lived for the rest of his life... his masterpiece was The Anatomy of Melancholy, first published in quarto in 1621 and reprinted in folio in 1624, 1628, 1632, 1651, 1652, 1660 and 1676... the sixth [edition] was printed posthumously from a copy containing his last corrections.... Burton had read much, and all that he had read, or nearly all, was refined and incorporated in the Anatomy... The Anatomy, as its publishing history shows, was one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century. All the learning of the age as well as its humour--and its pedantry--are there. It has something common with Brant's 'Ship of Fools (37), Erasmus's "Praise of Folly" (43), and More's Utopia (47), with Rabelais and Montaigne (95), and like all these it exercised a considerable influence on the thought of the time. Dr. Johnson deeply admired it, and Charles Lamb's often and strongly expressed devotion, served to rescue the Anatomy from a brief period of oblivion; its admirers will continue to read and re-read it."--John Carter & Percy H. Muir, eds.: Printing and the Mind of Man, #120, p.73.

Nathanael Culverwel (1615-1651) "An English philosophical writer, belonging to the school known as the `Cambridge Platonists.' His chief work, the Discourse of the Light of Nature, was published with several smaller treatises in 1652. It seems to have been suggested by the De veritate of his contemporary Lord Herbert of Cherbury, with whose views on epistemology he coincides to a remarkable degree, though controverting his attack upon Christianity from the side of reason. For grandeur and harmony of conception, as well as for rare insight and spiritual rapture which is almost the only trace of the Calvinism in which he was apparently brought up, the book is one of the most striking productions of the Cambridge school. Its main theme is the use of reason and the special nobility of its function in the search after truth..."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Religious Knowledge, III:320.

"Like the other Cambridge Platonists, Culverwell held that reason and faith are compatible.... Culverwell was the only member of the Cambridge Platonists to invoke natural law theory as the foundation of his rational ethics. His founding of the legal authority of moral law in the will of God and in the cognitive capacities of human beings has resulted in his being considered a precursor of Locke, major differences between them notwithstanding... The `light of nature' of the book's title is human reason, the `intellectual lamp' placed by God in the human soul to enable mankind to understand the law of nature. According to Culverwell the `law of nature' is the imprint of divine law in rational beings. While he acknowledged the limitations of postlapsarian human reason, he was optimistic about human capacities, emphasizing reason and free will as preconditions for knowledge of the moral law and the obligation to obey it. For this purpose, all human minds are furnished with `clear and indelible' principles of reason and morality. He conceived of God as an intellectual being who communicates with man through reason. Like Whichcote, he argued that men become more like God through the exercise of their reason. In coming to a knowledge of God and the eternal law, our reason is aided by experience of the external world which manifests God's wisdom in the fixed order of divine providence..."--Sarah Hutton, `Culverwell, Nathaniel (bap. 1619, d. 1651)', Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004; online edn, Jan 2008 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/6885, accessed 15 May 2014] Newly rebound with original paneled speckled calf laid over boards, spine with raised bands and gilt lettering, new endpapers, light foxing.

3 HAZARD, ROWLAND G. Essay on the Philosophical Character of Channing.

HAZARD, ROWLAND G. Essay on the Philosophical Character of Channing. By Rowland G. Hazard. Boston: James Munroe and Company. 1845. Octavo.

Pamphlet in original printed paper wrapper, worn at spine ends, dog-ears, light damp stains mostly in corners and on wrapper, light foxing. Collation: 1-54. Pagination: (1) title, (1) copyright & printer, (1) preface, (1) blank, [5]-40 essay. Amer. Imprints #45-3074.

Rowland Gibson Hazard (1801-1888) manufacturer, writer on philosophical subjects. He managed the family woolen mills in Rhode Island for 50 years. He was a Free-Soiler and later a Republican, a member of the conventions that nominated Fremont, Lincoln and Grant. He also was a member of the Rhode Island House of Representatives and state Senate. "His first considerable publication, Language... the book attracted the attention of William Ellery Channing, who became intimate with him. Following the latter's death in 1842, Hazard wrote an Essay on the philosophical Character of Channing, published in 1845. At some time prior to 1840, Channing suggested that Hazard should undertake a refutation of Jonathan Edwards on the Will. Hazard began to make notes and by 1843 had elaborated his main points only to lose all the material he had collected through a mishap to a Mississippi steamer on which he had taken passage to New Orleans. Fourteen years later he returned to the work and published it in 1864 under the title Freedom of Mind in Willing; or Every Being That Wills a Creative First Cause. The book gained for Hazard the friendship of John Stuart Mill, who wrote to him: "I wish you had nothing to do but philosophize, for though I often do not agree with you, I see in everything you write a well-marked natural capacity for philosophy... In 1864, while in Europe, he sought out Mill. His Two letters on Causation and Freedom in Willing, Addressed to John Stuart Mill (1869) were the result of his conversations and correspondence with the British philosopher."--Dict. Amer. Biog. VIII:471-72. We are pleased to offer Hazard's important essay on Channing.

Henry More, (1614-1687) "English philosopher, one of the foremost representatives of the school of Cambridge Platonists. His writings emphasized the mystical and theosophic phases of that philosophy, and as he grew older mysticism dominated his writings. Newton studied under him, and his concept of space and time as "the sense organs of God" greatly influenced Newton's theory of absolute space and time."--"More, Henry." The Columbia Encyclopedia, 6th ed.. 2014. Encyclopedia.com. 4 Mar. 2015 . "In his day More came to be regarded as one of England's leading contemporary philosophers. One of the first proponents of Cartesianism, he attacked Thomas Hobbes and Baruch Spinoza and was an enthusiast for the new science of Galileo and the Royal Society. His own philosophy owes much to Plato and Plotinus and is largely dedicated to the defense of religious belief against the twin forces of skepticism and atheism."--Hutton, Sarah: "More, Henry (1614-1687)." Europe, 1450 to 1789: Encyclopedia of the Early Modern World. 2004. Encyclopedia.com. 4 Mar. 2015 . "In theology More was a moderate latitudinarian, known for piety and an almost saintly nature. He wrote extensively against sectarians and enthusiasts, for their uncharitable doctrinal wrangling and their depreciation of reason in religion, and against the Roman Catholic Church, on the usual contemporary grounds. He concerned himself particularly with the interpretation of prophetic and apocalyptic Scriptures... A factor in More's return to philosophy was his discovery, sometime before 1647, of Descartes, whose writings seemed to show how to combine a scientific interest in nature with a primary concern for vindicating the reality of God and immortal human souls.... he conceived his main philosophical mission to be the refutation of mechanistic materialism. Appropriately, More's first major work was An Antidote Against Atheisme (1652), one of the most prominent early responses to Thomas Hobbes. More's opposition to mechanism eventually led him to a repudiation (in large part) of Descartes... The Immortality of the Soul is actually an elaborate treatise on the nature, kinds, and habits of spirits-by far More's most systematic work-in which many doctrines of Descartes and others are criticized. It defies summary."--"More, Henry." Complete Dictionary of Scientific Biography. 2008. Encyclopedia.com. 4 Mar. 2015 .
