Theism and Humanism 1913–1914

Arthur James Balfour

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

Theism and Humanism, Balfour’s first course of Gifford Lectures given in 1914, is aimed at defending the tenability of natural theology in a manner which appeals to the sensibilities of the ‘common man’. Balfour’s logic in this series rests on his appeal to common sense, finding Theism to be the most sensible and easily understandable basis for aesthetics, ethics and intellectual values such as reason, perception and intuition.
KEY WORDS: Aesthetics, Ethics, Epistemology, Metaphysics, Evolutionary theory, Science, Causation, Common sense
