"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"--Foreword.
