Pagina 378 - That no testimony is sufficient to establish a miracle, unless the testimony be of such a kind, that its falsehood would be more miraculous, than the fact, which it endeavours to establish: and even in that case there is a mutual destruction of arguments, and the superior only gives us an assurance suitable to that degree of force, which remains, after deducting the inferior.
Pagina 83 - To say a notion is imprinted on the mind, and yet at the same time to say that the mind is ignorant of it, and never yet took notice of it, is to make this impression nothing.
Pagina 394 - ... his conduct has been agreeable to the general rules by which those two sympathies generally act ; and, last of all, when we consider such actions as making a part of a system of behaviour which tends to promote the happiness either of the individual or of the society, they appear to derive a beauty from this utility, not unlike that which we ascribe to any well-contrived machine.
Pagina 133 - And here it is constantly supposed that there is a connection between the present fact and that which is inferred from it. Were there nothing to bind them together, the inference would be entirely precarious. The hearing of an articulate voice and rational discourse in the dark assures us of the presence of some person. Why? Because these are the effects of the human make and fabric, and closely connected with it.
Pagina 423 - ... one, is the result. Ideas, also, which have been so often conjoined, that whenever one exists in the mind, the others immediately exist along with it, seem to run into one another, to coalesce, as it were, and out of many to form one idea ; which idea, however in reality complex, appears to be no less simple than any one of those of which it is compounded.
Pagina 372 - An epistolary discourse, proving from the scriptures, and the first fathers, that the soul is a principle naturally mortal, but immortalized, actually by the pleasure of God, to punishment or reward, by its union with the divine baptismal spirit. Wherein is proved that none have the power of giving this divine immortalizing spirit, since the apostles, but only the bishops ; and that sacerdotal absolution is necessary for the remission of sins, even of those who are truly penitent.
Pagina 351 - The general and perpetual voice of men is as the sentence of God himself. For that which all men have at all times learned, Nature herself must needs have taught; and God being the author of Nature, her voice is but his instrument.
Pagina 417 - ... and it is only under the character of a constituted or containing whole, or of a constituting or contained part, that any thing can become the term of a logical argumentation.
Pagina 400 - That, in the phenomena of nature, what is to be will probably be like to what has been in similar circumstances.
Pagina 434 - Nitszch prepared and published a General and Introductory View of Professor Kant's Principles concerning Man, the World, and the Deity, submitted to the consideration of the Learned.
