which

Is various parts of the following Work,

references are made to subsequent speculations

, which are not contained in it. These fpeculations it is my intention to resume at fone future period: but when I consider the extent of my subject, and the many accidents may

divert me from the prosecution of it, I cannot venture fo far as to announce, in the title-page of this volume, any promise of a future publication.

Some additional chapters are still wanting, . to complete the Analysis of the Intellectual Powers. After finishing this, the course of my inquiries would lead me to treat, in the fecond place, of Man considered as an Active and Moral being ; and, thirdly, of Man considered as the member of a Political

Society.
