Idolatry, embodied specially in an important doctrine to be mentioned presently, was embodied generally in the worship of images. The reader who is at present unacquainted with the science cannot be at once informed of its scope by a reference to objects with which he is already familiar. We might have to say to every individual explanation, It is incredible, I cannot accept it; and unless circumstances should (which it is hardly possible that they should) force us to a hasty decision,–a decision, remember, which need indicate no preference of the judgment beyond what is just sufficient to turn the scale in its favour as against any other single alternative,–we leave the matter thus in abeyance. (1) It might, for instance, be said on the one hand, that what is meant is that the four events contemplated are equally easy to imagine, or, more accurately, that our expectation or belief in their occurrence is equal. If with a theow of the second class, l sceatts; if with one of the third class xxx sceatts.

As it is not proposed to give anything like a regular history of the subject, there will be no necessity to adhere to any strict sequence of time, or to discuss the opinions of any writers, except those who may be taken as representative of tolerably distinct views. Now since it is peculiarly characteristic of Probability, as distinguished from Induction, to be thus at the mercy, so to say, of every little fact that may be floating about when we are in the act of forming our opinion, what can be the harm (it may be urged) of expressing this state of things by terming our state of expectation _relative_?
