Principia(Volume 1)
Emanuel Swedenborg, Translated by Augustus Clissold

Principia, or “The first principles of natural things, being new attempts toward a philosophical explanation of the elementary world,” was first published in Latin in 1734. It opens with an essay on the author’s philosophical method that involves the employment of the trilogy of “experience, geometry, and the power of reason.” The work is about the creation of the elementary world and includes the original enunciation of the nebular hypothesis. It also includes a lengthy treatment of magnetism. It is the first of the series written from 1734 to 1745 in which the author sought to establish the method of the soul’s operation in the human body. Illustrated. Author and subject indexes.
Volume I: ISBN 0-915221-37-3, 482 pages, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, hb, 1988
