OST of the principles and reasonings, contained in this volume, were published in a work in three volumes, called A Treatise of Human Nature: A work which the Author had projećted before he left College, and which he wrote and published not long after. But not finding it successful, he was sensible of his error in going to the press too early, and he cast the whole anew in the following pieces; where some negligences in his former reasoning, and more in the expression, are, he hopes, correóted. Yet several writers, who have honoured the Author's Philosophy with answers, have taken care to direct all their batteries against that juvenile work, which the Author never acknowledged, and have affected to triumph in any advantages which, they imagined, they had obtained over it: A pračtice, very contrary to all rules of candour and fairdealing, and a strong instance of those polemical artifices, which a bigoted zeal thinks itself authorised to employ. Henceforth the Author desires, that the following Pieces may alone be regarded as containing his philosophical sentinents and principles.
