A synthesis of the lifelong thinking of British theologian philosopher James Martineau, this astonishing work, written when he was 80 and published in 1885, continues to offer important insight into the borderlands between faith and reason. A devout champion of Christianity, Martineau was also one of the first religious thinkers to recognize the import of Darwin's theory of evolution, and here, he interprets and applies ethics-which he defines as "the doctrine of human character"-in a world undergoing a radical paradigm shift. This work, originally published in two volumes, is presented here as one omnibus edition. JAMES MARTINEAU (1805-1900) was a British religious philosopher, instrumental in the development of Unitarianism and Transcendentalism. He was the professor of mental and moral philosophy and political economy at the Manchester New College for almost 50 years. Martineau was an editor and contributor at several notable literary publications, and his works include Types of Ethical Theory, The Study of Religion, and The Seat of Authority in Religion.
