Verlag: Thoemmes Press, Bristol, 2000.
Facsimile Reprint of the 1737 edition. Hardback. Single volume. Set ISBN: 1855068133. Single volume only. Robert Boyle instituted this series of lectures through his will, with the intention of providing a forum for prominent academics to confute atheism. The lectures were inaugurated in 1692 by Richard Bentley, a scholar who corresponded with Newton while preparing the lectures. The first 21 lectures by both famous and neglected scholars and theologians are gathered in this 4-volume collection. These lectures were written to give evidence of the existence of God to philosophers and scientists as well as lay people and as such provide arguments of varied interest to a modern audience. The sometimes poor evidence presented offers study in the development of argument. The collection culminates in an exposition of Newtons natural philosophy designed to explicate the theological position outlined in the earier lectures. They are thus the first popular presentation of the discoveries otherwise inaccessibly presented in Newton's "Principia" of 1687. New. May show some shelfwear. Fine and unread.
