If this discourse appear too long to be read at once, it may be divided into six parts and, in the first, will be found various considerations touching the sciences in the second, the principal rules of the method which the author has discovered, in the third, certain of the rules of morals which he has deduced from this method in the fourth, the reasonings by which he establishes the existence of God and of the Human Soul, which are the foundations of his metaphysic in the fifth, the order of the physical questions which he has investigated, and, in particular, the explication of the motion of the heart and of some other difficulties pertaining to medicine, as also the difference between the soul of man and that of the brutes and, in the last, what the author believes to be required in order to greater advancement in the investigation of Nature than has yet been made, with the reasons that have induced him to write.
