This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

therefore do not require an unlimited Paffion, 
but one governed according to the Exigence of

being offenfive onely in their a pplication require 
a particular forbearance, not any further vio- 
lence to their natures. 

Secondly, a G&rruption in regard of intenfion I 
is either when the Paifion admits not of any ad- 1 
mixtion of Love, when yet the objeft admits of | 
an admixtionof good 5 or wheff the hatred is ab-

which were left alive : for, to have mourned for 
one, would have forfeited the others* And for in-

thing which more frequently ^occurrcth. The 
Philiftines cut^fF the head of Sanl^ and fcnt it in

And therefore the devils firft temptation was 
drawne from the knowledge as well of evil as 
good^for he knew that the mind of, man would 
receive content in the underftanding of that, 
which in its own nature had no peTfeCiion in it. 
But then fecondly ^ in the objed of true de- 
ligt, Contemplation miniftreth a farther joy^in 
that it doth in fome fort preunite our fouls and 
our bleffednes together : arrd this is partly the 
reafon v/hy Ariftotle fo much advanceth his con- 
templative before his ptaftiquc felicity : For 
though this in regard of its immediat reference 
unto communion, beofamorefpreading and

of content, that fcrcnity of fou],that exaltation 
of thoughts which wc receive from thofe noble 
motions of the higher mind, the other doth fir 
In pleafure and fttisfadlion furpaffe all aftive

And as Contemplation by way of Prefcienee^ 
when it looketK forward on good things hoped : 

I So alfo by way oi memory ^yvhtvk it looketh back- 
ward and receiveth evil things efcaped, doth 
minifter matter of renewed Joy. No Man look- 
eth on the Sea with more comfort^than he who 
hath efcaped a (hipwrack. And therefore when 
Ifrael faw the Egyptians dead on the Sea Ihore, 
the fear of whom had fo much affrighted them 
before^they then fang a fong of Triumph. Paft

generall content my fcltc withabricfc Confidc- 
rationof the Caufes and Ef&i^ of this Paifion^ 

The Fundamentall and EiTentiall Caufe>of 
Anger, is Contempt from others meeting with 
the love of our (elves. Whether it be difcftima- 
tion and undervaluing of a mans perfon^or difap- 
poJntmeat of his purpofcSj or flandering his good 
name orany other way of calling injury on him, 
or any of the(e particulars being impaired^^ by 
(iich on whom we may hope to- receive revenge) 
doc woike not only Anxiety and Gricfe (whjch is 
a motion of flight) but hope alfo and defire to 
cafe it felfe, if not in the recovery of its ow43 lofle, 
yet in the comfort of another mans : For Calami- 
ty (as the Hiftorianfpeals) is ever either queru- 
lous or malignant^ Cumfkif malot^rqmturyquitfcit 
ditno. When it feels it fclfe wrung and pinched^it 
quickly proceeds either by juftice or revenge to 
pleafe it felfe in t retaliation. 

For the former .erf* tliefe, as it is the commpn 
property of Man with all other Creatures to love 
himfelfe : fo it is his particular defire alfo, being 
AmmdSocUk^ Politicumytohclovcd by othersj 
becaufe hereby that love of himfelfe, which pro- 
ceedeth from Jadgement andReafon>is confirmed. 
For every man doth mo rfc willingly bcleevc that, 
whcreunto he hath farther authority to perfwade 
WmC And therefore though Lovcbenptfinif-

NoMT although againft this ^prefent Reafon 
drawEc iiom^^con\entofmm\ which yet Hea- 
thens themfelves have u/ed ) It may be alledged 
that there hath bceoe a conlent like mk of fome^ 
That the Soule is nothing elfe but the Euaiaifie 
or good Temperature of the Body, and that it is 
therefore fub je^ to thofe Maladies, D i ftempers, 
Age, Sicknei^ » and at laft Death, which the Bo- 
dy is j as among the retk^LucraiMs takes much 
paines to prove .-yet the Tf utb is, that is f^otum 
mdgu quam ^dictum , never any firme opinion 
grounded on Judgement and Reafon y but rather 
a deiire of the heart, and a pafwafion of the Will 
inticiog the Underftanding fo to determine. For 
the donfcience of lewd Epicures and fenfnail 
minds^being fometitnes frighted with the flashes 
and appreheniions of Immortality , which often 
times purfues diem , and obtmdes it (elfe upon 
them againft thdr wills, fliinic^ like ligbtciiog 
through the chinks & crcvifes ( as I may fo fpeakj 
of their Soules , which areof fetpurpofe clofed 
againft all fuch light, (bts the Reafon on work to 
invent arguments for the eontiarfriide, thatfo 
rheir ftaggering and fcarcfull impiety may be 
fomcthina; emboldned, and the Eye of their 




and tacultiesoftbeSoul. 





coolctcQCc b I joded^aad the Mouth muffled from 
breathing forth thofe fecrct clamors and (lir ikes 
of feare. The Deniall then of the Immortality 
of the Sou!c is rather a ^//^than an Ofinian , a 
corruption of the Heart and Will, than any Na- 
tural! Aflertion of the underftanding , which 
cannot but out of the footfteps aad reliques of 
thofe fift facred Impreilions ^ acknowledge a 
I (pirituall rcfemblance in the Soule of Man unto 
fom c fupreame Deity, whom the cc^wfcience in 
all its Enormities doth difpleafe » And therefore 
it is obferved that the Mind of an Arheift i* con^ 
tinually wavering and uofarisfied , never able (o 
to finot^er the inbred confcioufnes of its im- 
mortality, as not ro have cominuall Tugyeftions 
I of fe^re an J fctaple. Wherefoever there is an 
impious Heart , there is alvvrayes a (h vering 
judge ment. 

Another Reafon of the ^ou'es immortality 
may be drawnc from the digmity and prehcmi- 
Oence of Man above other C eitures : for hee i^ I 
made Lord over them j atid they were ordaiped 
to be (erviccablc to him, andMinifters for his

there is al(b a remainder of the Image thefe- 
ot in Man : for albeit 5 the fall and corrupti- 
on * of Nature hath darimed his eyes^ fo that 
hee is cndined to worke Confufedly , or to 
walk as in a Maze 5 without Method or Or- 
der ( as in a Stonne the Guider of a Veffdl 
is oftentimes to feek of his Art 5 and forced 
to yeeld to the windes and waves ) yet cer- 
taineit is that in the minde of Man there ftill 
remainesaPflot^ or Light of Nature s, many 
Principles of. Pra^call prudence, whereby 
fthough for their &mtings a man do*s often 
mifcarry and walke awry ) the oourfe of our* 
Adions may be dircftecl with fucceile and if- 
fue unto Civill and Honeft ends. And this is 
evident, not only by the continuall praftife of 
Grave and Wife men , in all States , Times, 
and Nations ^. but alfo by thofe fundry lear- 
ned and judidous Precepts, which Hifbrians, 
Polititians , and Philofophers have by their 
naturaU Keafbn and Obiervation j&amed for 
die compafiing of a mans jufl: ends , and alfo 
for Prevention and difappointment of (uch in- 
conveniences as may hinder them. 

LaiUy, for the Attribute of Knowledge, It 
was doubdeflfe after a moft enunent manner 
at firft infufed into the Heart of Man , when 
heewasabk by Intuition of the Creatures to 
give unto them all Names, according to their 
icverall PropMies and Natures ^ and in them 
to fliew himfelfe ., as well a Philofopher, as 
a ' Lord. Hee fiBed thef^ri (aith Siracides^ with

the Km»ledge of Vnderftanding. And herein > if 
vree wiU beleeve jiriptle , the ^oule ismoftl 
neer dy like unto (7#4 v^hofe infinite Delight is 
the Eternall Knqvirledge and Contemplation of 
himfelfe^and his Weeks. Hereby fiaith beej 
the f oule ef naan is made raoft Beloved of God^ 
and his minde, which is Allied unto God , is it 
felfe Divine ^ and, of all other parts of Mao, moft 
D ivine. And this made the ^rpent ufe that In- 
finuation onely, as moft likely to prevaile3for 
compai&og tha( Curfed and milerable projeA 
of Mansruine. By meanesof vrbich Fall, though 
Man blinded his underftandiag , and rob*d him* 
(elfe of this/ as of all other blcfled habits, I 
Odeaneof thofe excellent Degrees thereof, which 
he then enjoyed ; yet ftill the Defire remaines 
Vaft and impatient , and the jwrfuit fo violent,^ 
that it proves often prsejudiciall to the eftate 
bodii of the Body and Minde. So that it is as true 
now, as ever, tto; Man is by Nature a Curious 
and inquiring Cfcatuie, of an Adive and jcftlefile 
Spirit, v^hicii is never quier, except in Motion, 
vrinding it ielfe into all the Pathes of Nature j

But KnervUdge as knowledgCj^doth never either 
burthen or cloy the Minde , no more than a 
Covetous man is wearied with growing Rich : 
And therefore the Philofopher telleth us that 
Knowledge is the * ReB of the Undtrftanditig ^ 
wherein it taketh delight as a Thing in its na- 
tural place, 

A nd fo great is this Delight^ that Men have 
ventured on much trouble to procure it. ^ As 
Pjthagor^^ fUto^Dtmocritus^ travelled mto re- 
mote Countries to gather Knowledge, as Sib^ 
l$m$n fent to 6fhir tor Gold. And as it makes 
adventurous to undei take Troubles^fo it helps 
men to bear them. A true Lover of Know- 
ledge will hardly be over- borne with any Or- 
'dinary diftrefle , if it do not violate , and re- 
;fl:rain that particular appetite. If he may en- 
joy the Delights of Learning , he will be 
very moderately afFe&ed with his other re- 
ftraints. Atchimtdts was not fenfible of the 
lofleof S'jracufe^ being wholly intent upon a 
Matheniatical DemonUration. And Demetri^ 
us fhAknm deceived the Calamity of his Ba- 
nifhment by the fweetnefie of his Studies. A 
Man is never afflifted to the ^uick, but,when 
he 1$ puniOied in his .inoft delightful aSe^t- 
.ons^tof all which the moft predominant in Ka- 
tionar men is this of Knowledge. /

more than any other) do arife thofe vaft difFe-

Strange Was the unhappinefle ofCalvifm S&hi-

fide hath been the felicity of fome otKers. .» i^ 
nca the Father could repeat 2600 words

A Treatife of the Fafsiom I 

And therefore the Spartan Princes when they 
heard from a man of a di(alIowed and (ufpe£):ed 
Life and Opinion which they approved^ they re- 
quired another man of reputation to propole it : 
That the prejudice of the perfbn mi^t not pro- 
cure a rejedion of his Judgement. For yrcc aic 
apt to naufeate at very good meat,when wcknow 
that an ill Cooke did drefle it. And therefore it 
is a very true Charafter which Tif//|^ and S^mti-' 
//4» g^ve of a right Oratour. Thathemuftbec^^ 
bonus dicetuU Peritus^ as well a Good nian as a\ 
Goodfpeaker. Otherwife though he may ifeake^ 
witii admirable wit, to the fancy of his hearcrs^he 
will have but little power over their AfeQims. 
Like a fire made of greene wood, which is fed 
with it as it is feweU, but quenched as it is 

LafUy^ fomeare CiviUva Caufes Deliberative, 
or luridicallpas Wifdome, pertinency and ifitncfle 
to the Nature and Exigence of the end or 
Matter whereupon we fpeake.For in tliat cafe wc 
are to ponder & meafiire what we (ay^by the cod 
whereunto we fay it^ and to fit it to all the Ci^ 
cumdances incident thereunto. Tatd amongft 
the PhiFofophers difputed with them from tnc 
Infcription of their Akar, from the Authority of 
their Peets^ & from confefled Maximes ofReafin^ 
by thefc degrees convincing them of Idolatry, 
and leading them to Repentance. But amon^ 
the Jews hee difputed cut of Scripture. With 
Felix that looked for mony^he difputed of Righ- 
teoufnefle and Judgement to come, but amongft 
[ the 



the Pharifees and Sadducesj of the Refurrection, 
that a Diflention amongft themfelves might 
procureapartyforhim. It is not wifedome for 
a man in mifery to fpeake with a high ftile : or a 
man in Dignity w^ith a Creeping. The (ame 
{peech may oe Excellent in an umbratile Exerci- 
tation^which would be too pedanticaP^and (mel- 
ling of the Lampe in a matter of ferious and 
weighty debate 5 and that may be dainty meat in 
one place for the fancy^ whicn in another would 
be too thinne for the Confcience. Nature hath 
guarded and compafled in the Tongue with the 
li|>S3like a folding Gate, and with the Teeth like 
a double Hec^e, that wee might be admQnifhed 
to weigh and ponder our words before we pro- 
duce them. 

Thefe are the prindpall Vertues. And in Op- 
pofition unto thefe, wee may eafily colled the 
principall Corruptions of this Faculty, which 
I will content my felfe with but the naming. 

The Vices in Grammer, are Solaecifmes, Bar- 
barifines, ObfolcteneflTc, Impropriety, Incongra- 
ity of Speech. In Rhetoricke, Sordidneffe, Tedi- 
oufhefle, Qbfcurit)^, Flatneflb of Conceit, Ar- 
gutcneflcjand Minmi£^ Gawdinefle, Wordinefle^ 
and Empty Oftentation. In Morals, the Vices 
1 may be comprifed under thefe two Generals, A&A 
tiloqummznATurpiloquium^ Garrulous and Rot- 
ten Communication. Laftly, in Civill Refpeft? , 
Levity and Impertinency, like the advices of

But bcfides all thefe^ there is one thing wWch 
feemeth to be the moft proper Corrupter of this 
Ornament of Speech, and that ir a Lje. For as 
every thing is then moft Regular when it retains 
the purity of its firft office and Wtitution : Soon 
the other fide it is moft depraved^when it deviates 
from that fervice whereunto it was principally

which I fpake of^ without which they are but 
Hipocrificj and come within the compaile of the 
noted Coriuption^a Lie: for every Hipocrite is a

Lycr. I confeflc there are Sins of Speech greater 
then a Lye, in the intention and degrees of -their 
OHTDc guilt:But herein is the differ€nce,the tongue 
may in it (whether Morally religioufly oonfide- 
rcd; beare a double Irregularity ( vvkerein it dif- 
fers from other powers.) 
■ Fir^ It may be Vnconformable to the Law of 
jr^htRcafon,as,in all manner of virions and un 
fivory Speeches. And the Corruption which 
hereby it incurres , is common to it with other 
Faculties , as the difproportion between EviJl 
Thoughts andReafon dilating thecontrary} 
worketh Corruption in the thoughts. 

And then fecondly it may be difproportioned 
to the Conceits of the Mind in ptopofing them 
othetwifcthanthey are inwardly meant, and this 
is properly a Lte. Which I mcrcfore call the 
principall Corruption of Spcech,not Cas I faid; 
bccaufe I conceive in it a gteater meafureof hei- 
noufnefle and Guilt, then in any other Speeches; 
(bccaufe all Guilt foUowes the Inconformity 
and Remotion from the Law of God and Reafbn; 
and therein other Speeches, as Blafphemy, and 
Sedition, may have a greater meafure of wicked- 
neflc ) but becaufe in a Lye I finde both the fore- 
named Irregularities, it being a Speech not only 
uneven to the Conceits of the Mind j but repug- 
nai^t alfo to the Will of God,and the Law of Na; 

nirc. ' . 

The next kind of A^ivc Qpcrations were thofc 
of Wit, Thculc whereof is fo much the more 
Excellent, by how much the Wreftings- and 

ppp Abufe 



e>f Treanfe of Paffiom 


Abnfc of it ii the more dangerous. I (hallfuffi- 
jcicntljr declare the worth of it,by (bcvriog what it 
|is: For I take not Wit in that eommon Acccpta- 
tton,wherby men underftand lome fodden fiaflics 
of Conceipt , whether in Stile or Conferenccj 
jwhich lUce rotten wood in the dark, have more 
6hinethen Subft^nce ; vvhofeuieandOrnatDent 
!arc like therafelves, Swift and Vaniftaingjatonce 
jboth Admired and Forgotten : but I underftaod 
a (etled,conftant, andhabituall fufiicienq oltbe 
tinder ftanding^whereby it is^ inabled in any kind 
of Learning, Theory, or Pra Aife, both to (harp- 
TOfsin Searchjfiirtilty inExpreflioni&difpatcK 
.in Execution. As for that orner kind (eenin Pa- 
negy ricks. Declamatory Difcourfes, Epigrams, 
.and other the like fuddea iflues of the brain, they 
are feats onely and (leights,not Duties and Mini- 
fteries of the Wit,wliich fcrve rather for Oftenr 
ration then ufe, and are only the Remiffion of the 
Mind and Unbendingof the thoughts from njore 
fevere Knowledge : as walking for Recrcatien i$ 
ratlicr Exercife than Travel,alt!rough by the vio- 
lence of tbemotion,orlength of the way, there 
may enfue Sweat and Wearincfle. 

Now for the Corrupters of tlie Wit, though 
there be diverfe s yet none fo immediate and cer- 
taine as it felfe, if alone : For Wit, though it be 
Swift, yet is often Btinde. Arid therefore tie 
\ fafter it baftens in Errour, the more dangerous it 
is to it felfe. And hence it it , that as Learning 
was never more bcmndto any^ thanthoie men, 
who have beeoeminent in this Faculty , i£ they

have been more pernicious and violent Oppug- 
iiers of Truth :> then nicQ bcft fumi (bed with 
Acutenefle, when they turned the u/e of i<i to* the 
ftrcngthning of their owne Fancies, and not fub- 
mitted it to Judgement and Exanoination. As the 
faftcft Soiles in Greece c^ufcd the greateft trou- 
bles J and the Beauty oiHclcna^he riiinc of Troy, 
Wit like Wine is a gooci remedy againft the 
poilbn of the Mind i but being it felfe poy foncd, 
it doth kill the fooner. Tb4ere ought to bee for 
the right difpoling of our Inventions^ a mutttall 
reference arid fervicc between Wit and Judge- 
ment. It is a vexation of Minde, to diicerne what 
is right and prdfitable^and have no inablement to 
attaine it . and that is Ju^g^mem without Wit. 
Andto I^ve a facility of coiQpadiiig ^ Eodiand 
a working and rcftleffe fancy without diic^ion 
to faftcn it on a fit Objeft , is theonely courfe to 
multiply Errour^andtobe ftill in Motion>ndt as

Tlicy ought therefore, I fay, tobe mutual Coad* 
jurors each toother. Wit is the Spurrc to ftirjse 
I up and quicken the Under ftanding : andjm^er 
ment is the Bridle to fway and moderate Wit': 
VVit is the Hand and Foot for Execution and 
Mptionj but Judgement is the Eye for Exar

Sundry Ends thqre are, which may be ddireid 
upon particular and conditionall occafions : but 
the true Vltimate^ utmoft, andJbfobfte Good \s 
God^ Altother Ends are M/»i/?r/;f^ and Subordi- 
nate ; he only is KVftwretr^f & h^x^nti'mK^Vy zsAri- 
Jiotle cals his Felicity, the Supreame & overruling 
End 5 the Fountsune of all other Goods : from 
the renK>te participation of whofc perfedions all 
other receive that fcantling of (atismdion & pro- 
portion, wiiich they beiare unto maiB Will* And 
therefore fome Philpfophas have ffmply called 
him Bofikm ^ Bonum SMpereJ/entiale. the only 
Self-Suftainina and Sdf-Depending Good, that 
is onely able thoroughly to fatiate and replenifli 
the unlimited Defires of the Soul of man. 

The Corniptions 6f the Defires faftened on 
himjare the two Extremfes of^kcefleand Dei^Q:.' 
The Extremes of Exdeflfe are Superjlition zn^Jdo^ 
latry ; a worfhipping of fiQfe gdos^or a felfc wor- 
ihipping of the True. Both iroceedis from the 
conftifed mixture of Qiigin^li Blindnefle, with 
the reliques i>f naturatl Knowledge, Tl^is latter 
gives us a fight in the Thefis and Gerierdll, that a 
ood there is to be defired : But touching die Hy- 
pothefic, who that God is, with the drcttmftan- 
ces and manner of his Worffup, Nature leaveth 
the Soule by occafioh of the latter in a ma^e 
of Darknefle and unavoydable Doubting and 
Uncertainty. So that Nature rives light enough 
toda&xyv&^NeceJfity of a Duty 5 but not to 
deere the Means ofExeciution^ Light enough to 
enjoy a walking 5 but the way being a narrow 
, ways, 


md^Midim^f the Soide. 

way, is on every fide hedged up from her view. 
The other Extreeme ofDefed^is enh&x Atheifme^ 
in not acknowledging^or Ignorance in not (eeing, 
that God whom we ought to ferve and defire. 
Both which ( if -^ffe^and Voluntary^as ufiially 
they are ) proceed either firom Guilt, or a Confci^ 
cnfneffe c£ fearefiill Crimes, which make men 
ftudy to flatter thdr diftraded Spirits in the per- 
fwauon that ho ludge fees them 5 or eife from a 
Senfualityanda JDe^reand purpofc to give In^ 
dnlgence to themfelves in their eyill courfcsj thin- 
king like that foolifh Bird^that thereis no Fowler 
to catch, no fnare to intrap them, if their Eyes be 
but feiled up^ and their heads thmft into the 
hedge of their owne darknefie : Though herein

oFthe Meanes : For Eleftion (as Arifioth deter-

toafimhtit. Andjet neither is the Freedome 
of the Will any whit impaired by fiich a neccffi-

Cod hath perfeft Power^though he cannot finne: 
^So wee may conclude of the WilL> it (hall in

it fhall never be able to Will an Abfence from 
the Viiion of God 5 (inoe the Liberty of fuch a 
Defire would be no Libert)r, but Imperfection 
and unnaturalnefife^Now ofall otha Perfedions,, 
this hath, in re(pe& of the utmoft End, bin quite 
Depraved, being now in ComipdoQiwithout the 
Amflance of Spiritual! or new Infofed Grace, 
throughly dilinabled from feeking means, which 
may truly lead to the fruition of God»and utterly 
captivated and inthralled to the Tyranny of Sin. 
So that this Liberty is left inviolated, ondy in 
Natural!, Moralland in Civil! Adions 3 Concer- 
ning which, diere is a Law in Nature, even the 
reliques and indeleble Foot-prints of mans firfl: 
Innocency, whkh moderates the Eledicms ef the

The iDominim and Supreme Command of the 
-¥^!I is onely over thofe Powers to the Produdi* 
en of whofe Operation^ it doth by its immediate 
Authority concurre as an i<^/i'/ltfe kfficienty or at 
leaft, as a Moving teachethnot therefim^ 
fo farre as to the command of the FegetaUve 
Power r Fcm: we cannot coomiand our Stomacks

vegetative facultiesjwhich were inftituted not for 
the proper fervice of Reafon^but of Nature 5 nei- 
ther teaeheth it to an Vniverfall Command of the 
Senfes 5 but ondy by the Mediation of another 
Faculty, over which it liatlji more Sovera^e 
Power: As it can hinder Seemg.not immediatdy, 
but by the Locomotive Power ^y doiing the Eyes. 
And the fame is true of the Inward Senfes; for 
the Memory and Imagination often faften upon 
Obje^ which the Efefire of the Will is, (hould 
not be any way reprefented unto diofe Powers : 
So likewife in the Senfitive Appetite^ when once 
Objeds belonging t&reunto, creep upon the 
Fancy^i Irregukr motions oftentimes violently 
refiftthc Will^ and the Law of the Members 
carrieth men captive from the Law of the Mind. 
LafUy, the Will hath no Dominion Abfblute 
and Soveraigne over tbofc Apprehenfions of the 
Vnderjianding^ which depend on necddary and 
demonffaative Prindples: It can reauire it not to 
di(cour(e about fuch Objeftsi and aivert it'5 but 
it' cannot make it aflent unto them contrary to 
the Evidence of Truth demonftratcd. tinefly 
then, the Dominion of the Will is partly Man- 
datory, and pardy Perfwafive, The one is Abfo-

when the Will is defirous to obey the Didates
