(p.194) 7 The Human Form of Life and the Experience of Value
Renewing the Senses

Mark R. Wynn

Oxford University Press

This chapter returns to some quotations which appear at the head of the book. These texts are taken from David Hume, Henry Vaughan, William James, and Thomas of Celano’s Life of St Francis, and they all concern the role of sensory experience in the spiritual life. This discussion aims to show how the themes of the book enable us to see in what sense each of these quotations may be affirmed, and in what sense they perhaps need qualification or elaboration.

Keywords:   value, experience, David Hume, Henry Vaughan, William James, St Francis
