Summary
"Believing with Bacon, that, "It ought to be eternally resolved and settled, that the understanding cannot decide otherwise, than by Induction, and by a legitimate form of it," I have endeavoured in the following discourse, to do something towards settling the great problem. The discourse therefore, lies within the province of logic in the most comprehensive meaning of that term, as embracing the method of investigation, the grounds of human belief, and the origin of all knowledge. It is true, that in the first part of the discourse, I have endeavoured, not only to show the grand results of Induction as an organ of Investigation, but also, to vindicate the philosophy which it has built up from the grave accusations that have been preferred against it. But this is nothing more, than a vindication of Induction from objections urged against it, on account of the imputed consequences to which it leads. The discourse therefore, in all its parts, lies strictly within the province of logic. The whole empire of human thought has been traversed in the discourse, revelation as well as nature has been searched, and Induction has been found every where, the true method of Investigation. And so far from its being the Organon of Infidelity and Atheism, as has often been asserted, it is found, that all the lines of investigation which it lays open, whether in physics or psychology, ultimately converge and point upwards, to an inquiry that results by the strictest logical necessity in the belief of a God"--Preface.
