Item Description...
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.

--includes the following authors (with dates of lectures): Richard Bentley, 1692; Richard Kidder, 1693-4; John Williams, 1695-6; F. Gastrell, 1697; J. Harris, 1698; Samuel Bradford, 1699; Offspring Blackall, 1700; George Stanhope, 1701; Samuel Clarke, 1704-5; John Hancock, 1706; W. Whiston, 1707; John Turner, 1708; Lilly Butler, 1709; Josiah Woodward, 1710; William Derham, 1710-12; Benjamin Ibbot, 1713-14; John Leng, 1717-18; John Clarke, 1719-20; Robert Gurdon, 1721-2; Thomas Burnett, 1724-5; William Berriman, 1730-32
--combined with a general index and new introduction, this edited collection offers the opportunity to reappraise major seventeenth and eighteenth-century, post-Newtonian arguments for the existence of God
--very rare 1737 edition
