Excerpt from Lectures on Moral Science: Delivered Before the Lowell Institute, Boston

Philosophy investigates causes, unities, and ends. Of these it is the last two that are chiefly considered in the following lectures. Happy, it has been said, is he who knows the causes of things. But in a world where there are so many apparent discrepancies both natural and moral, he must be more happy who knows the arrangement of things into systems, and sees how all these systems go to make up one greater system and to promote a common end. An investigation of causes respects the past; of unities and ends, the present and the future. Oi these the latter are more intimste to as, and he who can trace the principle of unity by which nature is harmonized with herself, and man with nature.
