Ideals of Religion

  • Andrew Cecil Bradley
1907 to 1908
University of Glasgow

As indicated by the title, Andrew Cecil Bradley’s course of Gifford Lectures, delivered at Glasgow University in 1907, discuss broadly the central ideas and ideals of religion, considered herein as a common phenomenon, a ‘mere fact’. Through an exploration of such subjects as the spirit, the mind, idealism, truth, reality and good and evil, Bradley’s aim is to explicate what religion is and what human needs it seeks to satisfy. He asserts throughout the lectures the necessary but paradoxical character of religion, namely, the union between finitude (Man) and infinity (God).
