Introduction
§.1. Subject matter of this
work

2

6
Evil consequences of
this delusion particularized
1 — a notion that to
pure mathematics belongs
a transcendent value
independent of, and superior
to that of mixt
mathematics:
independent of and superior
to that of every thing
that belongs to sense

6. From this misnomer not unimportant are the produced ills
consequences that may be seen to

A sort of transcendent and mysterious excellence is
ascribed attributed to it: a something distinct from and superior to it: a
something which enables it to in the order of consideration and
admiration places it conveys the idea of its being possessed of
a value distinct from and superior to that which belongs to any
portion of matter — everything that the object subject matter of perception
to any one of our five senses

7
2. By many the
so-called pure branch
is standard, without going
on to the mixt: and
there whatever a
thus the labour is
applied to what is useless,
to the exclusion of all
that is intrinsically
useful

7 One practical consequence is — that to an inconsiderable extent
persons in an inconsiderable number in the character of scholars instruction
is given in relation to it for its own sake, and without
any application made of it to any other branch of art and science:
in other words without proceeding to mixt mathematics
in any of its ulterior branches whereas, as will be seen in another place the truth is that unless
application be made of it, it is altogether useless: and the whatsoever
time and labour is bestowed upon it, is so much time and labour
thrown away

9
Nomenclature here
substituted, for avoidance
of that inconvenience:
for pure say applicable
or say as yet
unapplied
: for mixt
applied viz: to physics:
subject matter of
it objects cognisable
by one or more of
the five senses.

9 For the purpose To exclude of excluding the misconception — this mischievous maleficent delusion
I would propose to apply to this branch of art and science — and
shall accordingly all along apply to it instead of the attribution
pure the attribution unapplied or perhaps here and there to obviate
misconception — as-yet-unapplied or say applicable applying at the same time to
the correspondent and opposite branch the attribution applicant
meaning applied to physics to that branch of art and science which
has matter for its subject matter whatsoever presents itself to is perceived by any
one of the f one or more of the five senses.
