Dialogues on metaphysics and on religion by Nicolas Malebranche( )

34 editions published between 1688 and 2014 in English and French and held by 2,695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Malebranche's Dialogues on Metaphysics and on Religion is in many ways the best introduction to his thought, and provides the most systematic exposition of his philosophy as a whole. In it, he presents clear and comprehensive statements of his two best-known contributions to metaphysics and epistemology, namely, the doctrines of occasionalism and vision in God; he also states his views on such central issues as self-knowledge, the existence of the external world and the problem of theodicy. His skilful handling of the dialogue form enables the reader to see how he responds to objections made to his earlier work The Search after Truth. This edition presents a translation of the text which is clear, readable and more accurate than any of its predecessors, together with an introduction that analyses Malebranche's central teachings and explains the importance of the Dialogues in the context of seventeenth-century philosophy
The search after truth : translated from the French by Thomas M. Lennon and Paul J. Olscamp ; Elucidations of the Search after truth : translated from the French by Thomas M. Lennon / Nicolas Malebranche. Philosophical commentary by Nicolas Malebranche( Book )

370 editions published between 1674 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 2,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nicolas Malebranche is now recognised as a major figure in the history of philosophy, occupying a crucial place in the Rationalist tradition of Descartes, Spinoza and Leibniz. The Search after Truth is his first, longest and most important work; this volume also presents the Elucidations which accompanied its third edition, the result of comments that Malebranche solicited on the original work and an important repository of his theories of ideas and causation. Together, the two texts constitute the complete expression of his mature thought, and are written in his subtle, argumentative and thoroughly readable style. They are presented in the distinguished translations by Thomas M. Lennon and Paul J. Olscamp, together with a historical introduction, a chronology of Malebranche's life, and useful notes on further reading
Treatise on nature and grace by Nicolas Malebranche( Book )

96 editions published between 1680 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nicolas Malebranche (1638-1715) was the most important French philosopher between Descartes and Rousseau. His Treatise on Nature and Grace, first published in 1680, is one of the most celebrated and controversial works of seventeenth-century philosophical theology. This major text, last translated into English in 1695, is here made available to a new generation of readers in an entirely new translation, with a substantial scholarly introduction. The central argument of the Treatise is that God governs the realms of nature and of grace by simple, constant, and uniform Cartesian general laws and 'general wills', not through particular providence. This contention had fundamental repercussions within the contemporary debates on grace and salvation, contradicting the claims of the Calvinists and Jansenists that God wills the particular salvation of an elected few. Hailed as a work of genius by Bayle and Leibniz, the Treatise was to have a profound effect upon the development of eighteenth-century thought through the theory of the just and justifiable 'general will', which re-emerged in secular form in the work of Rousseau. Patrick Riley's limpid translation is complemented by his introductory essay locating the work in French philosophical tradition and exploring its far-reaching influence upon contemporary and subsequent writers
Treatise on ethics (1684) by Nicolas Malebranche( Book )

86 editions published between 1683 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written seven years after publication of his Search after Truth, Malebranche's Treatise on Ethics develops a detailed, èxperimental' science of ethics in two parts; the ethics of virtue and the ethics of duty. Part One distinguishes six sources of motivation: sense perceptions, passions, imagination, and ìnner feelings' of love as-respect, as-goodwill and as-esteem. He examines how each is to be evaluated. This is interwoven with an Aristotelian analysis of act and habit, and voluntary vs. involuntary acts, and practical reasoning. This part concludes with two basic virtues; t̀he strength of the mind' and f̀reedom of the mind'. Part Two explores our duties to ourselves. to others, to our sovereign, and to God. The translator's introduction discusses the place of Malebranche's ethics within his larger system, his borrowings and innovations, and his impact on later philosophers. Craig Walton is Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Institute for Ethics and Policy Studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas

"It is evident that God can have no other end of acting than Himself; that he cannot create Spirits but to know and love Him that he can neither give them any knowledge, nor impress upon them any love, but what is for, and tends to Himself; but he might have refused to unite our bodies those spirits which He has united. Therefore the relation of our minds to God is natural, necessary, and absolutely indispensable, but their relation to our bodies, though natural, is not of absolute necessity, nor of indispensable obligation. It is not difficulty to make out to attentive persons, and such as are skilled in true philosophy: for they need only be put in mind, that since the will of God regulates the nature of all things, it is more congenial to the nature of the soul to be united with God, that to be united to the body. First, we shall speak of the errors of the senses; secondly of the errors of imagination; thirdly, of the errors of pure intellect; fourthly, of the errors of our inclinations; and fifthly, of the errors of the passions. And thus, having made an essay to rid of the soul of the error which she's subject to, we shall, lastly, lay down a general method to conduct her in the search for truth"--Preface.
