"Having in the former Book explained and insisted upon the several Methods, by which Man may be let into a competent Knowledge of Himself, and the Condition of Humane Nature; which is the first part of our undertaking, and a very proper Introduction to Wisdom: The next thing in order, is to enter upon the Doctrines and Precepts of Wisdom itself. Now that shall be done in this Second Book, by laying down some General Rules and Directions. In order to give a rough and general Draught of Wisdom, and particularly of that part, which is the subject of this present Book; we may divide the Matter of it into four Points, or general Considerations. The First consists of such things as are Preparatives or proper Predispositions to Wisdom; and they are Two. The Second is concerned in laying the Foundations of Wisdom firm and durable; and these are also Two. The Third contributes to the raising this Building upon those Foundations; that is, laying on and finishing the several Functions and Duties of Wisdom; which are Six. The fourth is made up of the fruits, and good Effects of Wisdom; which are Two. These taken all together make Twelve Points in the whole, and each being allowed a distinct Consideration by itself this Book will accordingly contain just so many Chapters"--Preface.
