The present volume is closely connected with the work entitled 'Theism/ which was published in 1877. The two works may be regarded as two parts of a system of Natural Theology that is still very far from complete.
The chief omission in the present volume relates to Agnosticism. The explanation of the omission is that the author was anxious to avoid, in a semi-popular work, abstruse metaphysical discussion, and has long cherished the hope of being able, at some future time, to publish a historical account and critical examination of the various phases of Modern Agnosticism.
Publication date: (1889)
