T HIS paper is an attempt to indicate the bearing on the philosophy of religion of recent discussions in the field of moral philosophy.· I am still not at all certain what I want to say about this difficult subject ; and I have been persuaded to publish the paper in the present volume by two considerations only. The first is that the type of view here tentatively put forward is attacked by some other contributors to the volume; and readers may therefore find it useful to have to hand a statement of the view which is being rebutted. The second is that, since I am at the moment not able to make much progress in this enquiry, others may be helped to do so by my setting out some considerations which seem to me important. They are to be warned, however, that much in this paper is undigested, and the last section, at least, positively indigestible.
