“Nothing is intolerable that is necessary.”  

― Jeremy Taylor

 

Jeremy Taylor was a 17th-century cleric who worked within the Church of England, but composed fascinating and popular English prose. However, he is often remembered for his views on human conscience which appeared in “Ductor Dubitantium, the Rule of Conscience”. According Edward Andrew,

“Jeremy Taylor in Ductor Dubitantium agreed that conscience deals with matters that fall short of mathematical certainty; he thought that reason must supplement Biblical revelation if errors of conscience are to be minimized. Anticipating Rousseau and Kant, Taylor wrote that legislative conscience can give a law but not a privilege. Conscience as prospective is distinct from prudence in that the latter is concerned solely with things of this world, and with advantage and disadvantage, not with what is honest and dishonest.” (Conscience and its Critics)

This book was used as a reference for legal proceedings, particularly those involving religious or Christian circumstances. Many of the legal decisions that were influenced by this work were those that did not have reasons or support in their arguments. (Whitman, 191)

 

This third edition of ‘Ductor Dubitantium’ is the first version printed in folio, or large paper, format. Books III and IV have separate title pages
