##Content Summary##

#####Front#####

  1. To the much Honoured and Ingenious Francis Willoughby ESQUIRE.

  2. THE PREFACE.

#####Body#####

  1. Lux Orientalis.

    _ CHAP. I. The opinions proposed concerning the original of Souls.

    _ CHAP. II. Daily creation of Souls is inconsistent with the Divine Attributes.

    _ CHAP. III. (2) Traduction of souls is impossible, the reasons for it weak and frivolous, the proposal of Praeexistence.

    _ CHAP. IV. (Praeexistence) Praeexistence cannot be disproved. Scripture saith nothing against it. It's silence is no prejudice to this Doctrine, but rather an Argument for it, as the case standeth. Praeexistence was the common opinion of our Saviour's times. How, probably, it came to be lost in the Christian Church.

    _ CHAP. V. Reasons against Praeexistence answered. Our forgetting the former state is no argument to disprove it: nor are the other Reasons that can be produc'd, more conclusive. The proof of the possibility of Praeexistence were enough, all other Hypotheses being absurd and contradictious. But it is prov'd also by positive Arguments.

    _ CHAP. VI. A second Argument for Praeexistence drawn from the consideration of the Divine Goodnesse, which alwaies doth what is best.

    _ CHAP. VII. This first Evasion, that God acts freely, and his meere will is reason enough for his doing, or forbearing any thing, overthrown by four Considerations. Some incident Evasions, viz. that Gods wisdome, or his glory, may be contrary to this display of the divine goodnesse, in our being made of old, clearly taken off.

    _ CHAP. VIII. A second general evasion, viz that our Reasons cannot tel what God should do, or what is best, overthrown by several considerations. As is also a third, viz. that by the same Argument God would have been obliged to have made us impeccable, and not liable to Misery.

    _ CHAP. IX. A (4th) Objection against the Argument from God's goodness viz. That it will conclude as well that the World is infinite and eternal, Answered. The conclusion of the second Argument for Praeexistence.

    _ CHAP. X. A third Argument for Praeexistence, from the great variety of mens speculative inclinations; and also the diversity of our Genius's, copiously urged. If these Arguments make Praeexistence but probable, 'tis enough to gain it the victory.

    _ CHAP. XI. Great caution to be used in alledging scripture for our speculative opinions. The countenance that Praeexistence hath from the sacred writings both of the old and new Testament; Reasons of the seeming uncouthnesse of these allegations. Praeexistence stood in no need of Scripture-proof.

    _ CHAP. XII. Why the Author thinks himself obliged to descend to some more particular Account of Praeexistence. 'Tis presumption positively to determine how it was with us of old. The Authors designe in the Hypothesis that follows.

    _ CHAP. XIII. [7] Pillars on which the particular Hypothesis stands.

    • [1] All the Divine designes and Actions are laid and carried on by pure and Infinite Goodness.

    • [2] Then, There is an exact Geometrical justice that runs through the universe, and is interwoven in the contexture of things.

    • [3] Things are carried to their proper place and state, by the congruity of their natures; where this fails, we may suppose some arbitrary managements.

    • The Fourth Pillar. (4) The Souls of men are capable of living in other bodies besides Terarestial; And never Act but in some body or other.

    • The Fifth Pillar. (5) The soul in every state hath such a body, as is fittest for those faculties and operations that it is most inclined to exercise.

    • The Sixth Pillar. (6) The Powers and Faculties of the Soul, are either (1) Spiritual, and Intellectual: (2) Sensitive: Or, (3) Plastick.

    • The Seventh Pillar. (7) By the same degrees that the higher powers are invigorated, the lower are consopited and abated, as to their proper exercises, & è contra.

    _ CHAP. XIV. A Philosophical Hypothesis of the Souls •aexistence.

    • The Aerial State.

    • Terrestrial State.

    • The next step of Descent, or After State.

    • The Constagration of the Earth.

    • The Generall Restitution.
