Originally published posthumously in 1955, Harvey G. Townsend's Philosophy of Jonathan Edwards reprinted some of Edwards' most important early compositions on natural philosophy, "Of Being" and "The Mind," and collected nearly two hundred "Miscellanies" entries, some of them published here for the first time. In his introduction, Townsend points to Edwards' "radical idealism" that derived from Christian Platonism and John Locke rather than George Berkeley, as commonly thought. Townsend's work represents an important sourcebook for Edwards' writings, and his introduction presents a clear picture of mainstream Edwards scholarship at the middle of the twentieth century.
