Excerpt from The Spirit of Man: An Essay on Christian Philosophy
May be roughly termed philosophical. They rest on the views which a man entertains as to the nature of knowledge and the nature of morality. He is bound to reject a religion which seems to involve false corollaries on these subjects and, on the other hand, if its metaphysical and ethical implications seem sound and valuable, he will be ready to give a fair hearing to its historical attes tation. The subject is thus a vast one, alike in its area and in its importance. In touching upon it I have kept strictly to a single line, and have merely emphasized the doctrine of individual personality, which Christianity seems to me to contain, and which is, as I think, the only true foundation for a theory of knowledge and conduct. Thus in the first chapter I have tried to show that the Christian doctrine of creation guarantees individuality in the acquisition of knowledge without destroying the unity of truth, and allows us to recognise a difference between reason and sensation without thereby falling into dualism. Of course it is true that Christianity, as such, is committed to no special analysis of knowledge.
