Excerpt from The Law of Love and Love as a Law: Or Moral Science, Theoretical and Practical

If not, it is for them to reconcile their acceptance of the precept with their acceptance of Christianity as a philosophy. What we need is a Christian philosophy. Not that philosophy is to be received on the basis of revelation. To be philosophy it must be received on the basis of reason. But if a revelation really from God teach or imply a phi losophy, it must coincide with that taught by reason, and ought to be seen thus to coincide. If Christen dom is ever to be a fair exponent of Christianity, its Moral Philosophy must be that of Christianity.

We need also a philosophy in which the practical shall be drawn from the theoretical part, so that they shall not stand, as in most of our treatises, like the two sides of the Yosemite Valley, with a deep gulf between them. If, as Dr. Wayland says in the opening of his Practical Ethics, the whole Moral Law is contained in the single word Love, it would seem self - evident that the theoretical part, the philosophy, must consist of an exposition of Law and Love as they are in themselves, and as related to each other. Such an exposition Dr. Wayland did not attempt, nor can it be successfully at tempted by any one of his school, or of the school of Right, except as it shall be shown that the two precepts above given are identical.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 432 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Excerpt from The Law of Love and Love as a Law: Or Moral Science, Theoretical and PracticalIn the preface to the first edition of The Law of Love and Love as a Law, reasons were given for the publication of that work in addition to the Lectures on Moral Science. To the third edition a second preface was added, and of that the larger part is here given. In publishing a third edition of the following work some notice of the discussions to which it has given rise seems called for. In these it has apparently been forgotten by many how entirely the work is an exposition of that cardinal precept of Christian philosophy, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and thy neighbor as thyself. As imperative there is in that precept Law; and the one thing required by that law is Love. This gives us The Law of Love, and the law practically carried out gives us Love as a Law. With this the doctrine of ends as stated in the Lectures on Moral Science is co-incident, since the end of Love, so far as there is choice in it, and so morality, must be the good of the person loved.
