Four talks by John Macmurray M.C., LL.D. ,
Professor of Moral Philosophy in the University of Edinburgh
In 'his series of talks Professor Macmurray considers the relation of religion to the common everyday experience of human beings everywhere and at all times. What is it, he asks, that gives rise to religion, and what function does it fulfil in human life?
1-The Salvation of the World
In this talk Professor Macmurray maintains that the real problem of our age is a religious one, and that the attempt to solve religious problems by political and economic means cannot be successful.
