The works of Issac Watts (1674-1748) were standard texts in non-conformist colleges from Glasgow and Edinburgh to Harvard and Yale. His works were still known enough in the 19th century for them to be parodied by Lewis Carroll. Dr Johnson recommended Watts's books. Watts works were broad-ranging, writing on metaphysics, logic, astronomy, moral philosophy, geography, natural and revealed theology, church politics and organization, education and other related matters. Watts is probably best remembered as the author of some well-known hymns, as well as sermons and stories for children. This text gathers together his other writings, which were influential in their day, including those responding to Descartes's dualism, Boyle and Newton's physical philosophy, Locke's metaphysics and epistemology, and the work of the deists. Watt's writings brought these thinkers to the attention of 18th-century readers. For example, his study of Locke's "Essay" brought the work to a wider audience. The "Selected Works" include: "Philosophical Essays", a source for understanding the contemporary response to Locke and how he was viewed by 18th-century orthodoxy; "Logick" a logic textbook; "The Improvement of the Mind", a treatise on education; and "Horae Lyricae", a book of religious poetry which gave him his place in Johnson's "Lives of the Poets".
