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' by vievvs of this kind, obtained by the laws of this that we feel the peculiar force and salutary efficacy of the literal text - the subject, however, of sport and amusement to this serious expounder of the theology of Sweden borg. Sometimes he is compelled to acknowledge its distinctive eficacy, but he has a singular method of evading its force. But though, from analogy, the correspondency between light and truth, the eye and the intellect, may readily be admitted, their real correspondency is not so easily understood; because it is not so obvious that the light, which, in its modifications con stitntes our objects of sight, is from within, and could have no existence independent of the mind; since, without the mind, it would want the very ground or cause for its production, and where there is no cause there can be no The evasion is re workable - the logic of the Berkeley school and how astounding the infimmation, that a body without a soul is nothing! Should he not have taught his simple readers, in the language of common sense, that dead matter and living matter possess distinctive pro riﬂes, and that the one can exist separately without the other? Is in this way that he compounds things and qualities, which should be presented separate and distinct. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
