Two Dissertations, I. Concerning the End for which God created the World. II. The Nature of True Virtue.
S. Kneeland, Boston 1765 - First edition. Small octavo, full calf, rebacked. In good condition. Exceptionally Rare. Edwards argues against the people of his day that claimed that human happiness was the end for which God created the world. Edwards instead puts forth the idea that the reason for God's creation of the world was not human happiness, but the magnification of his own glory and name. Edwards then continues to argue that since true happiness comes from God alone, human happiness is an extension of God's glory, and that there are "ultimate" ends and "chief" ends, but they all end at the same conclusion. Edwards, like in Virtue, discusses how there is no true happiness without being happy in God (John Piper). [Attributes: First Edition]
