A FRAGMENT.

LONDON: R. CLAY, PRINTER, BREAD-STREET-HILL.

BEIDGEWATER TREATISE.

A FRAGMENT.

CHARLES BABBAGE, ESQ.

"We may thus, with the greatest propriety, deny to the mechanical philosophers
and mathematicians of recent times any authority with regard to their views of
the administration of the universe; we have no reason whatever to expect from
their speculations any help, when we ascend to the first cause and supreme ruler
of the universe. But we might perhaps go farther, and assert that they are in
some respects less likely than men employed in other pursuits, to make any clear
advance towards such a subject of speculation."—Bridgewater Treatise, by the
Rev. Wm. Whewell, p. 334.

LONDON:
JOHN MURRAY, ALBEMARLE STREET.

MDCCC XXXVII.
