The following computer-generated description may contain errors and does not represent the quality of the book.
Ae undisputed interest taken in the recent controverey between the Rev. Dr. Henry Wace, Principal of King eCollege London, and Prof. Buxley, over the qtieation of the true significance of agnosticism, and incidentally of the limite of natural knowledge; and the difficulty of gMng at the complete discussion when scattered through different publications, have induced the publishers to bring the articles together in a single volume. The opening paper, which led directly to those that follow, was read at the Church Congress in Manchester in 1888. The paper on The Value of WUness to the Miraculous, thontgh not strictly a part of the controversy, was published by Prof. Huxley while it was going on, and its direct bearing on the question at issue is a sufficient reason for its insertion. Mr. Mallodfr paper on Cowardly Agnosticism, and also that of Mrs. Humphry Ward, to which Dr. Wace makes rqply in his second article, are included for the valuable sidelights they throw upon the general subject under discussion.
