Excerpt from The Philosophy of the Active and Moral Powers of Man

The sixth and seventh volumes of Mr. Stewart's Collected Works comprise all that he has written on the doctrine of Ethics proper; - to wit, Part Second of the Outlines of Moral Philosophy, and the two volumes of The Philosophy of the Active and Moral Powers of Man.

Of the latter, The Philosophy of the Active and Moral Powers, there has been only one edition, in 1828, the year of Mr. Stewart's death; and the only part of that publication for which any additions by the Author have been found available, is the Appendix on Free Agency, (Vol. I. p. 343, seq.,) of which a transcript, varying occasionally from the printed text, and apparently anterior to the impression, has been preserved.

Of the former, The Outlines of Moral Philosophy, as already mentioned, (Works, Vol. II. p. viii.) there were four editions during the author's lifetime, in the three earlier of which Mr. Stewart has written various annotations, and these (when not merely jottings significant only to himself) have been here carefully incorporated, even though sometimes only quotations subsequently adduced in his Philosophy of the Active and Moral Powers.
