Isaac Watts' Logic became the standard text on logic at Oxford , Cambridge , Harvard and Yale , being used at Oxford for well over years. Peirce, the great nineteenth-century logician, wrote favourably of Watts' Logic. When preparing his own textbook, titled A Critick of Arguments: How to Reason also known as the Grand Logic , Peirce wrote, 'I shall suppose the reader to be acquainted with what is contained in Dr Watts' Logick , a book Watts followed the Logic in by a supplement, The Improvement of the Mind.
This also went through numerous editions and later inspired Michael Faraday. It was also widely used as a moral textbook in schools. The earliest surviving built memorial to Isaac Watts is at Westminster Abbey ; this was completed shortly after his death. His much-visited chest tomb at Bunhill Fields dates from , replacing the original that had been paid for and erected by Lady Mary Abney and the Hartopp family.
The earliest public statue, erected in , stands at Abney Park , where Watts had lived for more than 30 years at the manor house, where he also died. The park was later devoted to uses as a cemetery and public arboretum. A later, rather similar statue was funded by public subscription and erected in a new Victorian public park named for Watts in Southampton, the city of his birth. After World War II , it was lost to redevelopment. One of the earliest built memorials may also now be lost: a bust to Watts that was commissioned on his death for the London chapel with which he was associated.
The chapel was demolished in the late 18th century; remaining parts of the memorial were rescued at the last minute by a wealthy landowner for installation in his chapel near Liverpool. It is unclear whether the bust survives. A scheme for a commemorative statue on this spot had first been promoted in the late s by George Collison , who in published an engraving as the frontispiece of his book about cemetery design in Europe and America; and at Abney Park Cemetery in particular.
This first cenotaph proposal was never commissioned, and Baily's later design was adopted in In , the City of Southampton Watts' home city commemorated the year anniversary of his birth by commissioning the biography Isaac Watts Remembered , written by David G. Fountain, who like Watts, was also a nonconformist minister from Southampton. His parody is better known than Watts' original poem. The poem was also featured in the segment on the cartoon programme "Rocky and His Friends" called "Bullwinkle's Corner", in which Bullwinkle Moose recites poetry. In this case, the poem was titled "The Bee", with no author credit.
Strong quote from Watts' "Against Idleness and Mischief". At Princess Ida's women's university, no males are allowed. Her father King Gama says that "She'll scarcely suffer Dr. Watts' 'hymns'". A poem often referred to as "False Greatness" by Joseph Merrick "The Elephant Man" , which was used in writing or "signature block" by Merrick, starting "Tis true, my form is something odd but blaming me, is blaming God In fact only the last few sentences were penned by Watts "False Greatness", book II-Horae lyricae starting "Mylo, forbear to call him bless'd That only boasts a large estate Many of his texts are also used in the American hymnal, The Sacred Harp , using what is known as the shape note notation used for teaching non-musicians.
