Reason and Faith at Early Princeton

Full Product Description

Teaching piety and the highest good have been goals from the beginning of the Academy. Princeton University and Seminary had their start in these same ideas. This book explores the concepts of reason and faith at early Princeton by examining how this institution was shaped by a pursuit of piety and the knowledge of God. Princeton University (originally the College of New Jersey) emerged out of the First Great Awakening and its commitment to teaching 'vital piety.' Reason, as the faculty by which humans understand, was affirmed and developed in the pursuit of the knowledge of God. Faith, as belief in what is not seen, was affirmed against the challenges of Deism and Naturalism. No other institution at the time combined reason, faith, and historic Christianity in this way. The implication is that early Princeton represents a high-water mark in education worthy of our consideration.

Reason and Faith at Early Princeton by Owen Anderson was published by Palgrave Macmillan in June 2014. The ISBN for Reason and Faith at Early Princeton is 9781137443281.
