9781330107331: Personalism (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Personalism

Early in the last century, M. Comte, the founder of French positivism, set forth his famous doctrine of the three stages of human thought. Man begins, he said, in the theological stage, when all phenomena are referred to wills, either in things or beyond them. After a while, through the discovery of law, the element of caprice and arbitrariness, and thus of will, is ruled out, and men pass to the second, or metaphysical stage. Here they explain phenomena by abstract conceptions of being, substance, cause, and the like. But these metaphysical conceptions are really only the ghosts of the earlier theological notions, and disappear upon criticism. When this is seen, thought passes into the third and last stage of development, the positive stage. Here men give up all inquiry into metaphysics as bootless, and content themselves with discovering and registering the uniformities of coexistence and sequence among phenomena.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Personalism The aim of these lectures is to show that critical re?ection brings us back again to the personal metaphysics which Comte rejected. We agree with him that abstract and imper sonal metaphysics is a mirage of formal ideas, and even largely of words, which begin, con tinue, and end in abstraction and confusion. Causal explanation must always be in terms of personality, or it must vanish altogether. Thus we return to the theological stage, but we do so with a difference. At last we have learned the lesson of law, and we now see that law and will must be united in our thought of the world. Thus man s earliest metaphysics reemerges in his latest but enlarged, enriched, and purified by the ages of thought and experience.
