Force of Enthusiasm.
      §3. Upon this occasion I shall take the Liberty to consider a third
Ground of Assent, which with some Men has the same Authority,
and is as confidently relied on as either Faith or Reason, I mean
Enthusiasm. Which laying by Reason would set up Revelation
without it. Whereby in effect it takes away both Reason and Reve-
lation, and substitutes in the room of it, the ungrounded Fancies
of a Man’s own Brain, and assumes them for a Foundation both of
Opinion and Conduct.
