Being An Essay towards proving, that the Immorality, Ignorance, and false Taste, which so generally prevail, are the natural and necessary Consequences of the present defective System of Education. With An Attempt to shew, that a Revival of the Art of Speaking, and the Study of our own Language, might contribute, in a great measure, to the Cure of these Evils. In Three Parts. I. Of the Use of these Studies in Religion, and Morality; as also, to the Support of British Constitution. II. Their absolute Necessity in order to refine, ascertain, and fix the English Language. III. Their Use in the Cultivation of the Imatative Arts: shewing that were the Study of Oratory made a necessary Branch of the Education of Youth, Poetry, Music, Painting, and Sculpture, might arrive at as high a Pitch of Perfection in England, as they did in Athens or Rome
