dc.description.abstractIt has been the purpose of this thesis to make a study of religious value in the light of its development from Hoffding to the present. The conclusions have been formulated in the following theses. 1. The approach to be used in the study of religious value is reason enlightened by revelation. 2. The intrinsic values of society, goodness, beauty and truth find their complete expression in religion. 3. The true nature of religious value is found in the synthesis of subjective religious experience and the metaphysical reference. 4 . Religious value is verified in the personal experience between God and man. 5. A personal salvation experience turns tragedy into triumph, and eliminates the problem of evil. 6 . A free, personal will is a necessary postulate to the experience of religious value. 7. The friendliness of the universe to religious value is dependent on a personal friendliness.en_US
