On the Evidences of Design Manifested in the Constitution of Man





Human Species, Design, Anthropocentrism, Anatomy, Instinct, Reason, Natural Theology

    Describes the manifestations of design in the human species as being more conspicuous than in the other species under its dominion. Begins with the 'bodily constitution of man', focusing particularly on human anatomy and the organs of sense (412). Contrasts the instincts of other species with the intellectual and moral powers of the human species. Describes the reason, memory, and imagination of the human species, and considers their mutual adjustment. Concludes by arguing from such design to the existence of a designer.
