DESCRIPTION

Excerpt from Elements of Natural Philosophy: Explaining the Laws and Principles of Attraction, Gravitation, Mechanics, Pneumatics, Hydrostatics, Hydraulics, Electricity, and Optics; With a General View of the Solar System; Adapted to Public and Private Instruction
The great object of Science is to ameliorate the condition of man, by adding to those advantages which he naturally possesses. What would avail the deep and speculative inquiries, by which the learned attempt to trace the source of Infinite Wisdom, if their labours did not produce benefit to their fellow creatures?
In this View the study of Philosophy stands highly conspicuous, not only in the pleasure it affords in the pursuit, but in promoting our interests, supplying our necessities, and adding to the general happiness of mankind.
