PREFACE

TRANSLATOR.

MR. CHARLES BONNET, of Geneva, from whose works I have seleSled and translated this volume, is not of the Clerical profession, but is a gentleman of independent fortune. He is held in the highest esteem in the literary world, as a metaphysician, philosopher, and explorer of nature. His deep views, and the light he has thrown on various subjects, give him an undoubted claim to the reputation he enjoys.*
