The concept of personality in William Temple's philosophy
Padgett, Jack Francis
MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation has two purposes: first, to expand Temple's conception of philosophy and personality; second to evaluate Temple's use of personality as a philosophical principle to solve problems of moral and social philosophy, philosophy of history, and metaphysics. Temple begins the philosophic quest with a conception of reality derived from his own religious experiences and the doctrines of the Christian faith. He ends where he began, without adequately employing an analysis of the data of experience to discover a conception of reality or to modify his vie. Although, as Temple contends, man begins the knowledge venture believing that he can know the world, doubt remains about the veracity of ay particular apprehension. [TRUNCATED]
