" We have rid fniatl degree of pleasure in announcing
thd present work to ouf readers ; as one whi.th from tba
freedom of its enquiry, the gtaridetir of its vie W», and the
fortitude of its principle*, is eminently defetving of atten
tion. By this culoglum, we would by no means be under
stood to fubferibe to all the principles which these volumes
contain. Knowledge is not yet arrived at that degree of
Certainty which is requisite, for any two men to think a
like on all fuhje<fts; neither has language attained
firtent accuracy, which can enable them to convey their
thoughts, even when they do thinkalike, in a mannerper
-1 fe&ly corredt and intelligible to both. These difficulties
are only to be overcome by a patient, incessant, and bene
" Many of the opinions which this Work contains, are
bold', some of them are novel; and some doubtless are er
roneous :—but that Which ought to endear it even to those
whose principles it may offend, is the strength of argu
ment adduced in it to proife, that peace and order most ef
fectually promote thehappinefs after which political re
formers are parting ; —that as the prbgrefs of knowledge
is gradual, political reform ought not to be precipitate ; —
and that convulsiVe violence is dangerous not only to indi
viduals (for that rcfult comparatively would be of smalt
account) but to the general cause of truth. It ii the op
posite of this principle that infpirti the enemies.of politic
al enquiry with so much terror 5 it is the Tuppofition that
change must inevitably be attended by the turbslence and
injustice of commotion; and that innovation cannot be
made without the intervention df evils more deftru&ivc
than thole which ate intended to be reformed. Under the
cor.vidion of this philanthropic fentlment, of calm and
gradual reform, (which in its proper place he has fully il- 1
luftratfcd) Mr. Godwin proceeds withont scruple firft to en
quire into present evil, through its effc&tial branches, and
next to demonflrate future good.
'' Dividing his work into eight books, and making I-he
IMPORTANCE Of POLITICAL INSTITCTIONS the fubjeA of
the firft, he begins by an attempt to prove th/ omnipo
tence of government ovet the moral habits of mankind ;
and that on these moral habits their wisdom, virtue and
