"In republishing the "Aids to Reflection, " I have aimed to adapt it, as far as possible, to the circumstances, in which it will be placed, and to the wishes of those readers who will be most likely to seek instruction from the work. As the philosophical views of the author, and what are considered his peculiarities of thought and language, are less known, and his other writings less accessible here, than in the community for which he wrote, I supposed it might increase the usefulness of an edition for the American public to connect with it such extracts from his other works, as would serve to explain his language, and render more intelligible the essential principles of his system. Passages selected for this purpose will be found attached to many of the author's notes, as well as to other notes which have been added. These constitute the principal addition to this part of the volume, though a few extracts are inserted in note 59 from Henry More's Philosophical Works. I have thrown in occasional remarks of my own, and in a few instances have hazarded my thoughts more at large. Notes merely explanatory could not be multiplied without compromising my respect for the understanding either of the author or of the reader. I am persuaded, moreover, that if parts of the work are found difficult to understand, a little reflection will show the difficulty to be inherent in the subject, and such as could not be removed by multiplying illustrations. No language and no illustration can help the reader to understand himself without the labour of serious and persevering reflection. I have endeavoured to furnish, however, that sort of help, which I thought would be most effectual with regard to the views of the author, by giving references, in the notes on important topics, to all the parts of the work, where the same topic is treated of. The notes for obvious reasons are thrown together after the text of the work, and the additions which have been made in this edition are so designated, as to distinguish them from the original notes of the author. An Appendix is added consisting of matter which it was thought would serve the same purpose of illustration with the notes, and otherwise increase the usefulness of the volume."

Coleridge's Aids to Reflection was written at a time when new movements in thought were starting to unsettle belief. It was read with admiration by early Victorians such as John Sterling, F. D. Maurice, and Thomas Arnold, contributing to the formation of the Broad Church Movement, and with respect by members of the High Church Movement, including John Henry Newman. Coleridge had intended simply to produce a selection from the writings of the seventeenth-century Archbishop Robert Leighton with comments of his own, but as he worked at the book he found the commentary expanding to take in the fruits of his religious thinking over the years, so that the second, and more important, part of the volume was totally dominated by his thought. In this, the first major edition of Aids to Reflection, the intricate story of Coleridge's changing conception is unfolded by way of an introduction and detailed notes, the surviving materials for the volume being printed in appendixes. The introduction also traces the subsequent influence of the work in England and America; further appendixes include James Marsh's influential preface to the first American edition, which is reproduced in full.Originally published in 1993.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions.

"I am called to speak of the memory of a Christian Philosopher. It is a noble title, nobly won, though so few in our fallen world have deserved it. I do not feel that I am called to eulogize, but to set before you some among many virtues of a man, whom it seemed to us as if we could ill spare, out of a class from which, in this country, the loss of such a one must be long and painfully felt, because, as yet our institutions have produced, and God's mercy has granted, so few; and he especially seemed to have just ripened for effort and usefulness. We do not, to-day, think of him as a spirit in heaven, though he is there; still less do we think of him in the grave, where "the shell of the flown bird has mouldered;" but, we think of him as here; we seem to feel his presence in the spot where so many have listened to his instructions, and still are ruled by his spirit from its urn; these scenes, so familiar to him living, bring him into the midst of us this day, just as he was on earth, while absorbed in those profound meditations in which he delighted. I have said that I do not feel that I am called to eulogize, for this is needless, and the occasion demands much more; so does the memory of our departed instructor and friend. You will bear with me then, if now, not confining myself to the review of Dr. Marsh's personal and mental excellencies, I dwell, for a little space, upon some of the requisites essential to the character of a Christian philosopher. A Christian Philosopher! The highest qualities that can adorn humanity, must go to make up such a character; and yet, such a being, we say it without hesitation, and not in the spirit of eulogy, but of justice, was Dr. Marsh. And in dwelling upon these qualities, qualities of mind and opinion as well as of the heart, while I shall speak with particular reference to Dr. Marsh, I shall also speak as I should have been glad to do in his own presence, without any such reference suggested; although, as I passed along in my enumeration of particulars, every mind might say within itself, of this excellence Dr. Marsh was an example. I begin, then, this enumeration, with the very obvious and general truth, that no man can be a Christian philosopher, without being himself, by personal union with Christ, through the regenerating influences of the Holy Spirit, individually, in the New Testament sense, and not by nominal courtesy, a Christian. A second fundamental requisite in the character of a Christian philosopher is the habit of self-discipline, including especially that of self-examination. Perhaps it is of sufficient importance to mention, as a third characteristic of a Christian Philosopher, that he will take his whole being with him. He must neither leave his Christianity behind, when he goes into his philosophy, nor his philosophy behind, when he goes into his Christianity. A fourth requisite, which may be mentioned as characteristic of a Christian Philosopher, is a candid and charitable appreciation of other men's points of view, not views simply, but points of view. A Christian Philosopher has much to do with Christian Theology; but it is as a learner rather than a critic; for without doubt philosophy should always stand and serve, as a modest handmaid to Theology, and not as a superior judge"--Book.
