Description : Excerpt from On the Mental Illumination and Moral Improvement of Mankind, Vol. 5: Or an Inquiry Into the Means by Which a General Diffusion of Knowledge and Moral Principle May Be Promoted Several excellent works have lately been published on the subject of education, some of them recognising the leading prin ciples which are here illustrated. But the author has, in every instance, prosecuted his own train of thought, without interrer ing with the sentiments or language of others, unless where it is acknowledged. Some of the works alluded to he has not Had it in his power to peruse; and the same current of thought will sometimes occur to different writers on the same subject - The greater part of this work was composed before the author had an opportunity of perusing the excellent treatise of Mr. Simp son, entitled. Necessity of Popular Education-a work which abounds with liberal and enlightened views, and which recog hises the same general principles which are here illustrated.

Description : Excerpt from On the Mental Illumination and Moral Improvement of Mankind, or an Inquiry Into the Means by Which a General Diffusion of Knowledge and Moral Principle May Be Promoted: Illustrated With Engravings In endeavouring to promote a general diffusion Of knowledge among the various ranks of society, it becomes us likewise to inquire, whether the attempt would be accompanied with such beneficial effects as to warrant the labour and expense which must necessarily attend such an enterprise - and, whether any insurmountable difficulties stand in the way of its accomplishment. There are not wanting, even amidst the light of science which is now shining around us, many individuals in the higher classes of society who are bold enough to insinuate, that an increase Of knowledge would be injurious to the lower ranks Of the comma nity-that its accomplishment is both undesirable and impracti cable - that the moral world will proceed onward as it has hitherto done - that there is no possibility of meliorating the condition of the great mass Of mankind, - and that it is altogether Utopian to attempt to direct the moral and intellectual energies Of the human race into any other channel than that in which they have hitherto been accustomed to flow. Such insinuations evidently flow from a spirit of misanthropy, and are intended, if possible, to fix the moral world in a quiescent state, as the material world was sup posed to be in former times, and to damp every exertion that is now making to promote the improvement and the happiness of our species. They are likewise inconsistent with the dictates of Divine Revelation, which plainly declare that the knowledge Of Jehovah shall cover the earth, as the waters cover the channels of the seas, and that all shall know him, from the least to the greatest.

Description : Excerpt from The Complete Works of Thomas Dick, LL. D, Vol. 1 of 3: Containing an Essay on the Improvement of Society, the Philosophy of a Future State, the Philosophy of Religion, the Christian Philosopher, Mental Illumination and Moral Improvement of Mankind Had the present work been published at any of the periods now referred to, the subject it discusses, and some of the illustrations, would have presented a more novel aspect than they can lay claim to at the present time, when the diffusion of knowledge has become an object of general attention. The author, however, is not aware that any work embracing so full an illustration of the same topics has yet made is appearance; and is, therefore, disposed to indulge the hope, that, in conjunction with the present movements of society, it may, in some degree, tend to stimulate those exertions which are now making for the melioration and mental improvement of mankind. Independently of the general bearing of the facts and illustrations on the several topics they are intended to elucidate, the author trusts that not a few fragments of useful knowled e will be found incorporated in the following pages, calculated to entertain an instruct the general reader. In the numerous illustrations brought forward in this volume, it was found impossible altogether to avoid a recurrence to certain facts which the author had partially adverted to in some of his former publications, without interrupt ing the train of thought, and rendering his illustrations partial and incomplete. But, where the same facts are introduced, they are generally brought forward to elucidate a different topic. Any statements or descriptions of this kind, however, which may have the appearance of repetition, could all be comprised within the compass Of three or four pages.

Description : Excerpt from The Complete Works of Thomas Dick, LL.

Though we cannot look back, without feelings of regret, and even of horror, at the revolting scenes d anarchy and bloodshed which accompanied that political convulsion, yet, amidst all its evils, it was productive of many important and beneficial recalls. It tended to undermine that system of superstition and tyranny by which most of the European nations had been so long enslaved; it rowed million, hu among the mass of the people, to assert those rights and privileges, to whichtheyareentitledas rationalbeings, and which had been withheld from them by the strong bad ofpower; itstimulated them to in vestigations into every department connected with therights ad the happiness of man, and it excited a spirit of inquiry into every subject of contemplation which can improve or adorn the human mid, which, we trust, will never be extinguished, till the light of useful knowledge shall extend its influence over all the inhabit ants of the earth.
