The meaning of God in human experience : a philosophic study of religion by William Ernest Hocking( Book )

58 editions published between 1912 and 2003 in English and held by 1,407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the general dissatisfaction with idealism, and in our unclear efforts to win elsewhere a positive groundwork for religion, Mr. Hocking found the sufficient warrant for such a study as this book undertakes. it inquires what, in terms of experience, its God means and has meant to mankind (for surely religion rises out of experience and pays back into it again): and it proposes, by aid of the labors of all co-workers, critics and criticized alike, to find the foundations of this religion, whether within reason or beyond

In the preface to this 1918 work, Hocking writes that the object of the book is the quest for the principles of educating, civilizing, converting, and ultimately saving the human being through a new method of philosophical and religious interpretation. He explores the notions of human instinct, will, and the senses of justice and art--with final chapters dedicated to a Christianity in which human will to power can find fulfillment

Gabriel Marcel reminds me that I asked him to write for this book. This is quite true, but not the whole story. During the visit with Ernest Hocking which he describes so eloquently in his essay, "Solips ism Surmounted," he learned from Hocking's hostess, Elizabeth Hazard, that I was planning hopefully for a Hocking F estschri/t. On his return to Harvard, where he was preparing his James Lectures, he wrote me offering an essay should these plans develop. Encouraged, I kept his letter while I moved my family to India and settled into a new job. When it was possible to begin work on the book in earnest I then made my request, reminding him of his original offer. I mention this because I discovered that his enthusiasm was to be typical of those who came to know about the project. Charles Moore commented that such a book was "long overdue," and Walter Stace spoke for us all when he said: "I am sure that there is no one in our profession who would not wish to be associated with any project in his honor. " Given the wide range of Hocking's interests and influence, it was difficult to know just how the volume should be organized

Morale and its enemies by William Ernest Hocking( Book )

22 editions published between 1918 and 1943 in English and Undetermined and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"War carries the minds as well as the bodies of men into strange paths, and so creates an unwonted need for self-understanding. At the same time, the power and the leisure for self-understanding are diminished. Men, as well as nations, must choose their part quickly, discern their friends and their enemies, revise all plans, leap to strange tasks at the call of the moment, though all the questions of politics and of metaphysics are involved in the deed. And while the decision reached may reveal the solvency or insolvency of the soul that issues it, the need to bring together the fragments of one's mental life remains, and will remain for long after the war is past. This book is an attempt to help--the soldier first, and also the civilian--in this task of understanding one's own mind, under the special stresses of war. There must be many such attempts, from different angles of experience: one can only contribute from his own angle, that of the student of human nature and of philosophy, aided by certain special opportunities which the author owes to the courtesy of the Foreign Offices of Great Britain and France"--Preface.
