Item Description...
Published in 1721 by the prominent Puritan clergyman Cotton Mather (1663-1728), The Christian Philosopher was the first comprehensive book on science to be written by an American. Building on natural theology, Mather demonstrated the harmony between religion and the new science associated with Sir Isaac Newton. His survey of all the known sciences from astronomy and physics to human anatomy presented evidence that both celestial and terrestrial phenomema imply an intelligent designer.

Winton Solberg's introduction places Mather's treatise in its widest historical context. In addition to tracing the origins and sources of Mather's work, Solberg analyzes the book's contents, its reception, and its significance in American intellectual and cultural history. This edition affirms Mather's importance to American thought as a deeply religious intellectual who introduced the Enlightenment to America.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Mather's Christian Philosopher  Mar 12, 2007
A tough read, but an important one for understanding colonial New England and how the Enlightenment was changing the Puritan mind. Mather is also valuable to read in contrast to Jonathan Edwards.
Fascinating study of a cult  Mar 14, 2003
The progenitor of the Salem Witch trials documentary materials collected. This is a fine work of historical scholarship. Check the academic libraries around you...this is the historical foundation of modern right-wing personality / morality cults.
