VOLUME II.

CONTAINING

PART III.

SECTIONS 1. AND 2.

Of the Imaginative and Theoretic faculties.

BY A GRADUATE OF OXFORD.

“ Accuse me not
Of arrogance,
If, having walked with nature,
And offered, far as frailty would allow,
My heart a daily sacrifice to Truth,
I now affirm of Nature and of Truth,
Whom I have served, that their Divinity
Revolts, offended at the ways of men,
Philosophers, who, though the human soul
Be of a thousand faculties composed,
And twice ten thousand interests, do yet prize
This soul, and the transcendent universe
No more than as a mirror that reflects
To proud Self-love her own intelligence."

WORDSWORTH.
