Dick, Thomas

Dick, Thomas LL.D., was born in 1772 or 1774, near Dundee, Scotland, and was educated at the University of Edinburgh with a view to the ministry in connection with the Secession Church. After a brief pastoral charge at Stirling he devoted himself to literature; but, although his productions obtained a great popularity both in England and America, they brought him very little pecuniary return. Towards the close of his life a small pension was granted him in consideration of his literary services. He died at Broughty Ferry near Dundee, July 29, 1857. His principal works are The Christian Philosopher (1823): — The Philosophy of Religion (1825): — The Philosophy of a Future State (1828): — Celestial Scenery (1838): — The Sidereal Heavens (1840), and The Practical Astronomer (1845). Several of his writings have been translated into other languages; one even into Chinese; In a scientific point of view, his writings are of no great value.
