Excerpt from Swedenborg Versus Berkeley, Kant, and Coleridge, in a Retrospective Review of the "Record of Family Instruction," 18mo, 1832: With a Few Remarks on the "Tracts on Spiritual Christianity"
It is, however, by a clear analysis of the terms adopted by Swedenborg, that we are taught the value and important uses of the literal text, as the media of a divine communication, and we perceive the superior degrees of illumination it is adapted to impart. Expressions which appear odd and unintelligible to the thoughtless and uninstructed mind, are in reality opened by the interior sense into a wider range of thought and more expansive views of the mysterious constitution of the divine government.
