Abstract

Religion is so important a factor in man’s intellectual life, and has so direct a bearing upon the growth of the emotions, that I ought not to omit some account of my development upon this side.I have already observed that I was not gifted by nature with any strong sense of God as a person near to me; nor was I naturally of a pious disposition; nor yet again endowed with that theological bias which qualifies the metaphysical thought of philosophers like my late brother-in-law, Professor T.H. Green.The groundwork of my mental temperament might rather be described as literary, aesthetical, with a certain bias to scholarship and curiosity.
