Excerpt from Studies in the Philosophy of Religion This volume does t claim to be more than its title indicates. I have t attempted, more Germanico, to deal with the subject systematically. On the one hand, I doubt my own competency for the task; and, on the other hand, it seems to me that in the present condition of speculative thought such an attempt is hardly desirable. But the reader will find that the following essays, so far as they go, form a fairly connected treatment. All I can hope is that at points I have dealt suggestively with a deeply important subject. The fourth essay is the statement of a philosophical position, which I try to develop and apply to religion in the essay which follows. It is reprinted by kind permission from 'Mind.' My cordial thanks are due to my friend, the Rev. D. Frew, B.D., for valuable aid in revising the proof-sheets.
