Summary
"This book presents the following aims: 1. To describe the nature of the different powers and operations of mind; 2. To show the object for which it was made; 3. To show the mode by which this object can be secured. 4. To show that the mind of man is a disordered one; 5. To show the mode by which it can be rectified, so as to accomplish the purpose for which it was made; to show that this mode is revealed in a communication from its Maker; and to establish the authority of this record; 6. To show the consequences in a future state, of the continued disordered operation of mind; 7. To show the causes why the remedy for the disordered operation of mind, is not more generally secured; and 8. To exhibit the mode of training and regulating mind, according to the dictates of experience, reason, and the revealed communication of its Author. The discussion of these subjects has necessarily involved topics, not usually introduced into works of Mental Philosophy. But it is believed, that nothing has been admitted, which is not strictly philosophical, and necessarily connected with a proper study of the laws and operations of mind. On subjects of a theological nature, the author has cautiously avoided all that is sectarian, and it is believed that all Christians who found their eternal hopes upon the Mediation and Sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ, can cordially unite in all the sentiments presented on these subjects"--Preface.
