God and Nature 1919–1921

George Frederick Stout

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

Placing himself between F. C. S. Schiller’s ‘pragmatism’ and Bertrand Russell’s ‘ethical neutrality’, Stout agrees with William James that philosophy must give some credence to religious belief and experience. God and Nature is an attempt to address the fundamental nature of the universe and the place of human beings within it. Drawing upon the first series of lectures, the work addresses the nature of mind and matter and what they reveal about the constitution of the universe. Stout argues for a theistic ontology and teleological universe in which the will of a Universal Mind is unfolding, primarily through its relation to the finite minds embodied in humankind.
