Lectures on moral science by Mark Hopkins( Book )

"Philosophy investigates causes, unities, and ends. Of these it is the last two that are chiefly considered in the following lectures. "Happy," it has been said, "is he who knows the causes of things." But in a world where there are so many apparent discrepancies both natural and moral, he must be more happy who knows the arrangement of things into systems, and sees how all these systems go to make up one greater system and to promote a common end. An investigation of causes respects the past; of unities and ends, the present and the future. Of these the latter are more intimate to us, and he who can trace the principle of unity by which nature is harmonized with herself, and man with nature, and man with himself, and the individual with society, and man with God--who can see in all these a complex unity and can apprehend their end--will have an element of satisfaction far greater than he who should know the causes of all things without being able to unravel their perplexities. From the place assigned to Moral Philosophy in the classification adopted in these lectures, an incidental consideration of the above harmonies seemed to be required. Hence it is hoped that the book may contain suggestions that will be valuable to some who may not agree with its doctrines on the particular subject of morals. It is particularly hoped that it may do something towards introducing more of unity into the courses of study, or some of them, in our higher seminaries. If the works of God, regarded as an expression of his thought, are built up after a certain method, it deserves to be considered whether that thought will not be best reached by following in their study the order that has been followed in their construction, and which is involved in that method. Something of this I have long aimed to do in my instructions, and with very perceptible advantage. With suitable text-books and a right arrangement of studies, much more might doubtless be done. In treating of any natural system, as each part implies all the others, wherever we begin, and whatever method we follow, we are compelled to use terms whose full meaning can be reached only in the progress of the investigation. This is particularly true when, as in the present instance, instead of beginning with definitions, we seek for them. For this it is hoped that due allowance may be made. It will be seen that important, and even cardinal points, are often but briefly touched in these discussions. I can only say that the work is, of necessity, suggestive rather than exhaustive, and that if these points are so treated as to show their place in the system, the outline may be readily filled up"--Preface.

"In following out the system, and in turning from books to the investigation of the subjects themselves, I have found myself differing more frequently and more widely from those who are regarded as authorities than I expected. Such difference will be found not only in regard to the nature and place of the Intuitions, but in regard to Consciousness, to Perception, to various doctrines of Logic, to the central position of Choice, and to the nature and necessity that precede and follow that as they are related to Choice and to each other. The work will, therefore, be found to differ from others, both in its Method and its System. If these are correct, errors of detail will be of minor consequence. Whatever may be its fate, I shall be content if this work shall awaken in the community a wider interest in the study of man, -- of man in his unity so marvelously complex, as he is related to the universe around him, to his fellow-men, and to God"--Preface.

"The substance of the lectures was preserved in a phonographic report. This, it was found, would be of so much aid in writing them out that the form of lectures and the phraseology appropriate to them have been retained, though the references to the board were so many and of such a character that a recast of many portions has been found necessary. As read, the lectures would scarcely convey a correct impression of the extent to which the board was used. The method of teaching an abstract subject other than Mathematics through the eye has long been practiced in Logic, but until recently has been chiefly confined to that. So far as I know, the first to apply it generally and with success was my friend Mr. Dickinson of the Westfield Normal School. This is not object-teaching. That consists in showing the object itself, but this is the teaching of relations, which are invisible, by means of things that are visible. This facilitates the holding of abstract subjects steadily before the mind, and I cannot but hope a good deal from it in the way of popularizing studies of this kind. I shall be content if this work shall awaken in the community a wider interest in the study of man,--of man in his unity so marvellously complex, as he is related to the universe around him, to his fellow-men, and to God"--Preface.
