This 1850 edition of The Method of The Divine Government is the Scottish philosopher and clergyman James McCosh's influential account of how God's providence, which in his opinion is an unquestionable fact, governs the world in both a physical external and in a moral internal sense. When John Stuart Mill's System of Logic appeared in 1843, McCosh took issue with Mill's apparent refusal to give due weight to supernatural powers, and counterattacked in 1850 with his own lively volume, The Method of Divine Government, Physical and Moral, which was instrumental in leading to his appointment to the chair of Logic and Metaphysics at Queen's College, Belfast, founded that year by the British government. James McCosh 1811-1894, president of Princeton College from 1868 to 1888, played a significant role in the American reception of evolution in the late 1800s - he was one of the more prominent.
The Divine Government is a synthetic statement of the author's whole philosophy, and that philosophy was a theory of the universe conditioned by Christian revela- tion. It may betaken as in some respects the work which is most typical of Dr. McCosh, though it did not represent him in. Thornwell wrote of James McCosh's The Method of Divine Government: "We regard it as one of the first productions of the age." In 1890 Noah Porter wrote: Thornwell "published many able and important discussions on Philosophical Theology and Ethics.". Prepared by Arthur Edward Waite 1857-1942, this English translation was first published in 1913. An editor and translator of numerous magical texts, Waite includes here a preface comprising an eloquent defense of Levi and intellectual magic. The original French edition is also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection.
