Only edition (complete despite the pagination) of this dissertation defended at the Augustinian college in Rottenbuch, attempting to provide a survey of metaphysics in one hundred paragraphs. The work explains, among other matters, the scope and purpose of metaphysics, the basis of Aristotelian metaphysics, the divine attributes, the difference between possible and actual entities, the nature of causation, the rational soul, and the properties and philosophical usefulness of angels; as might be expected, the approach is thoroughly scholastic.

Third, expanded edition (first 1789).

His Discourse infuriated Edmund Burke, provoking Burke’s Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790). Before his death, Price was able to reply briefly to Burke’s attack in his preface to the fourth edition of the Discourse, but ‘it was left to his friends Joseph Priestley, Mary Wollstonecraft, Joseph Towers ... and Thomas Paine to make lengthier and more studied replies’ (ibid.).
