    Excerpt from Lectures on the Philosophy of the Mind, Vol. 4 IN my last Lecture, Gentlemen, I examined, at as great a length as a doctrine so false in its principles requires, the system of Dr Mandeville with respect to virtue; a system in which the actions that com monly go under that honourable name are represented as, in every instance, where any seeming sacrifice is made to the happiness of another, the result of a cal culating vanity that, in its love of praise, consents to barter, for a suitable equivalent of commendation, the means of enjoyment which it would not give without a due equivalent, but which it values less than the applause that is to be offered in purchase of them. The pretender to generosity, who is a Speculator in this species of traffic, is of course a hypocrite by the very quality of the moral ware in which he jobs; and the applauders of the ostensible generosity, who are as little capable of unpaid admiration as he of gratui tous bounty. Are hypocrites of equal skill, in the sup posed universal cheat of social life. All are impostors. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
