Product Overview

1885. Lilly first examines the intellectual movement termed Modern Thought and asks if religious faith any longer possible? or has Modern Thought dealt it a fatal blow? He then turns his attention to John Henry Newman's spiritual history and how his experience, unlike that of Schopenhauer, has led him to believe in God. In the Third Chapter he reviews the great non-Christian systems in the world and then indicates their position in respect of Christianity. In the Fourth Chapter he studies the arguments for and against belief in Deity. Finally, in the Fifth Chapter he deals with the subject of immortality. Contents: The Foundation of the State; The Origin of the State; The End of the State; The Functions of the State; The Mechanism of the State; The Corruption of the State; and The Sanctions of the State.
