dc.description.abstractThe problem of this dissertation is to determine the place of teleology in the thought of Charles Augustus Strong: his use and recognition of teleological factors. The method chosen to implement the investigation is a critical examination of the development of Strong's epistemology and metaphysi cs in terms of their respective priority, agreement, relative critical depth, and of Strong's use of teleological factors in the development of his metaphysics and epistemology. Special consideration is given to Strong's emphasis on animal faith and related purposive factors in his epistemology -- an emphasis which stands side by side with Strong's denial of teleological factors in his metaphysics. Particular attention is also given to the mind-body problem, since Strong focused much of his labor on the mind-body problem and the origin and function of consciousness as a natural product of evolution.en_US
