Source of Human Good

Wieman, Henry N.


This is a facsimile edition of a 1946 work of the American pragmatic theologian Henry Nelson Wieman (1884–1975). For Wieman, science and technology represent great power for good and evil, and they must be directed toward the service of that force which creates, sustains, and fulfills human life. But as long as this force is portrayed in supernaturalist terms, as the God who is wholly transcendent of the world, its actual operation in human life is beyond the reach of inquiry. For science to serve the source of good, that source must be understood as open to rational-empirical examination.
