The Principles of Nature, or A Development of the Moral Causes of Happiness and Misery among the Human Species, is a work by Elihu Palmer, written in 1801.

After rejecting the doctrines of the Calvinists, he founded the Deistical Society of New York in 1796. In England, Richard Carlile was fined and jailed for several years after publishing works deemed blasphemous, including 'Principles of Nature'.
