Freedom and Immortality

The Forwood Lectures in the University of Liverpool, 1957
  • By Ian T. Ramsey
These two key ideas in the Christian understanding of man are taken together because each makes the same sort of claim, appealing to a situation not restricted by what is observed in sense experience. This does not make reasonable talk about ideas any easier--in fact, Professor Ramsey constantly shows himself as aware of the charge that all talk about them is meaningless. In language free from jargon and with many opposite and amusing illustrations, the philosophy of this enjoyable book is of the kind to appeal to a generation grown weary of metaphysics, and it is successful in throwing new light on some very old problems. Here is a book by a leading Oxford philosopher written for a wide public. Ian T. Ramsey (1915 - 1972) was former Bishop of Durham, County Durham, England, and also served as Nolloth Professor of the Philosophy of the Christian Religion at Oxford University. He was also the author of Religious Language, Models for Divine Activity, and Words About God.
