Recommendations of Courses of Action

  • William A. Christian
Part of the Philosophy of Religion Series book series (PHRES)


Most of this chapter is about oppositions of those religious doctrines which recommend specific courses of action, but first we should develop the background for this a little further. The point of the B-series of utterances as a whole is to recommend a certain pattern of life; the point of the J-series is to recommend a different pattern. Let us ask a question whose force is logical rather than historical, the hypothetical question: How could these overall recommendations be opposed?
