Priestley, peint à la fin de sa vie par Rembrandt Peale (vers 1800)

Cette liste des œuvres de Joseph Priestley classifie tous les ouvrages de Joseph Priestley (1733-1804), philosophe naturel britannique, prêtre dissident, philosophe politique, théologien et enseignant. Il est plus connu pour sa découverte, concomitante à celle d'Antoine Lavoisier, de l'oxygène.

Membre d'une congrégation religieuse marginale durant toute sa vie et partisan de ce qu'on nommait les « Dissidents rationalistes », Priestley préconise la tolérance religieuse et l'égalité des droits pour les Dissidents. Il plaide pour des droits civiques élargis, dans des œuvres importantes comme Essay on the First Principles of Government, étant convaincu que les individus apportent le progrès qui ne peut finalement déboucher que sur le Millénaire ; il est le principal commentateur britannique du providentialisme[1]. Priestley fait également des contributions importantes dans le domaine de l'enseignement, par des publications comme The Rudiments of English Grammar, un ouvrage sur la grammaire anglaise. Dans ses contributions à l'éducation, il préconise l'enseignement des arts libéraux et insiste sur l'importance de l'étude de l'histoire moderne. Dans ses travaux sur la métaphysique, Priestley « tente de combiner le théisme, le matérialisme et le déterminisme », un projet qui sera souvent décrit comme « audacieux et original »[1].

Durant toute son existence, Priestley est non seulement connu comme polémiste politique et théologique, mais aussi comme physicien. Sa réputation scientifique repose sur son invention de l'eau gazeuse, des travaux sur l'électricité et la découverte de plusieurs gaz, le plus fameux étant le dephlogisticated air (l'oxygène gazeux). Cependant, sa détermination à rejeter la « nouvelle chimie » de Lavoisier et à défendre la théorie phlogistique l'ont considérablement éloigné de la communauté scientifique.

Cette liste des œuvres de Joseph Priestley est reprise de l'ouvrage A Bibliography of Joseph Priestley 1733-1804 (connu aussi sous d'autres titres) de Ronald E. Crook et suit étroitement ses subdivisions génériques[2]. Tous les textes sont de Joseph Priestley et cette liste ne comporte que les premières éditions anglaises et quelques traductions françaises disponibles en ligne.
