Having laid down his methodology, James devotes the greater part of The Moral Philosopher, and virtually the entirety of what I have termed the “naturalistic” portion of his account, to analyzing what he takes to be the three basic kinds of questions in moral philosophy. We no longer need to travel across the ocean to visit a Hindu temple or an Islamic mosque or to meet a Sikh or a Jain.

Over the last thirty years a number of theologians have been using aspects of sociology alongside the more traditional resources of philosophy. James concludes his discussion of the casuistic questions of ethics by declaring that “ethical science is just like physical science, and instead of being deducible all at once from abstract principles, must simply bide its time, and be ready to revise its conclusions from day to day” (WB, 208). 27 James’s is a decisively empiricist and humanist vision of the moral life, and it calls for doing the best we can with what resources we have. “There is but one unconditional commandment,” he declares, “which is that we should seek incessantly, with fear and trembling, so to vote and to act as to bring about the very largest total universe of good which we can see” (WB, 209).

In larger organizations an office or function may be expressly charged with handling code violations. Not only can we not sensibly conjecture the existence of values in a purely physical world; we also cannot sensibly hold that goods and obligations exist independently of minds, or minded beings. This faith, in turn, is seen to consist minimally in the belief that God’s infinite scale of value; moral legislation; and participation in the moral life jointly put morality on an objective footing, and in turn provide us with the hope that our moral aspirations will not go unfulfilled. 33 In the final section of “The Moral Philosopher and the Moral Life,” James brings his account of ethics to a close by modifying his earlier claims for the sufficiency of a purely naturalistic account of ethics.
