God and Reality in Modern Thought

Excerpt

This work is both critical and constructive, and culminates in an interpretation of religion. The approach is historical, with account being taken of divergent philosophical tendencies that have figured prominently in Western thought since Kant. Although provincialism and dogmatic exclusivism are resisted, a position is reached and defended.

Over the years great help has been derived from the criticism and intellectual stimulation of several teachers and friends, more particularly of the late Professors S. Alexander and J. L. Stocks (Oxford and Manchester), H. Bergson and E. Le Roy (Collège de France), N. Berdiaeff (Moscow and Paris), and R. B. Perry (Harvard); Professors A. D. Ritchie (Manchester and Edinburgh), A. E. Teale (Manchester and Keele), O. F. Bollnow (Mainz and Tübingen), B. Blanshard (Yale), and W. Desan (Georgetown), and K. Rockett (Durham).

Thanks are also due to my colleagues at Cornell University, Professors N. Malcolm, I. Rabinowitz, and F. Solmsen, for advice and encouragement during the final stages of the writing; and to my wife for her unfailing assistance.
