A series of eight lectures by the Rev. V. A. Demant , Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology and Canon of Christ Church, Oxford
6-The Debate about Human Nature
In this sixth lecture Canon Demant takes up a point that he made in the first. Is human nature too good or too bad for Capitalism or Socialism? He examines the views expressed on this from Robert Owen to Berdyaev and traces the fate of the original Capitalist idea of ' The Calling/ The Christian doctrine of man illuminates this question. In particular, Canon Demant examines the Christian attitude to the idea of human perfectibility, bias in knowledge, and the division of powers. The debate about human nature continues, but certain facts must be taken into consideration ... technical power is not neutral; economic motives play a part in human life. Canon Demant seeks to relate this debate to the relation of the Kingdom of God and a better earth.
