"This volume of essays is in general in line with the principles of the late Dr. Borden P. Bowne." -(opening line of the introduction) Borden Parker Bowne (1847-1910) was an American Christian philosopher and theologian in the Methodist tradition. He was a professor of philosophy at Boston University for more than thirty years, where in 1888 he became the first Dean of the Graduate School, a position he held until his death. A controversial figure who categorized his views as Kantianized Berkeleyanism, transcendental empiricism and, finally, Personalism, a philosophical branch of liberal theology, of which Bowne is the dominant figure. His basic position was that there was no naturalistic or theological basis for treating nature, its changes, developments, and laws, as something over against God. Therefore, Bowne felt that no religious man should be threatened by scientific knowledge. One result of this view is that there is no reason to defend the idea of miracles in the traditional sense of the word, since a serviceable conception of the immanent activity of God in nature renders such traditional tales more suitable for children than persons of mature faith, according to Bowne. This latter view, in which Bowne denies the traditional view of miracles and argues against the blood atonement, and by implication the resurrection, led him into troubles with the conservative constituency of his church.
