Title: Philosophical Principles of Natural Religion: Containing the Elements of Natural Philosophy, And the Proofs for Natural Religion, Arising from them.
Description: London: Printed for George Strahan..., 1705. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, 195 x 113 mms., pp. [xxxii], 118 [119 -120 blank], 282, 68, contemporary calf; joints, corners, and spine restored; no leaves before title-page, text stained and fingered, lacks final leaf of errata, a rather modest copy. Cheyne uses the principles of Newton to argue for the existence of a non-mechanistic deity. He maintains that since gravity cannot be explained by any hypothesis or physical principle, it must not be innate and depends on a deity for its existence. The work attracted little notice, but Cheyne published revised and expanded versions in 1715, 1724, and 1736. In recent years, he seems to have attracted more interest from scholars and historians of ideas than he enjoyed in his lifetime
