Andrew Ure

Edinburgh School of Arts , Glasgow Mechanics' Institution

    Welcomes the scientific education of mechanics as a boon to British industry, and for its possible 'moral effect' by 'substituting intellectual for low and sensual enjoyments'. Considers religion the 'principal thing' for moral purposes, but suggests that 'auxiliary plans are not, in their place, to be despised'.
