Robert Boyle instituted this series of lectures through his will, with the intention of providing a forum for prominent academics to confute atheism. The lectures were inaugurated in 1692 by Richard Bentley, a renowned scholar who corresponded with Newton during their preparation.
The first twenty-one lectures by both famous and neglected scholars and theologians are gathered in this 4-volume collection. These lectures were written to give evidence of the existence of God to philosophers and scientists as well as lay people, and as such provide arguments of varied interest to a modern audience. The collection culminates in an exposition of Newton's natural philosophy designed to explicate the theological position outlined in the earlier lectures. They are thus the first popular presentation of the discoveries otherwise inaccessibly presented in Newton's Principia of 1687.
The Boyle Lectures are central texts to the study of 17th and 18th-century philosophy and theology, and important background works to the major writings of Hume, Leibniz, Butler and Locke. Until now they have been extremely hard to find by the modern scholar.
