Description

Isaac Watts is best known today as the author of Joy to the World and many other favorite hymns. But during his lifetime, he was well known as a pastor and scholar. His Logic text was used to teach that subject at Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, and other leading universities for 200 years.

As his life neared its end, he endeavored to finish his notes on a book he’d been working on for many years, The Improvement of the Mind, or, a Supplement to the Art of Logic. Filled with a lifetime’s worth of wisdom, this text is a treasure for students and adults alike.

Watts’ book is ideal for the student of Dialectics, or Logic. It provides Most Excellent wisdom for students about how to improve their minds for lifetimes of service to their God and fellow creatures, but also cautions students against the pitfalls and snares of scholarship and higher learning.
