In Religion and the One, Frederick Copleston investigates the metaphysical relationship between the One and the Many found within both religious and philosophical enquiry. These lectures attempt to synthesize the “natural” or philosophical theology envisaged by Lord Gifford with the interest of non-western cultures espoused during his advanced years. This enquiry leads Copleston to conclude that the activity of synthesizing many empirical facts on the metaphysical level culminates in an elusive project of understanding the One.
