This chapter presents a broader picture of the whole of the worldview that results from the themes introduced in earlier chapters: reality is conceived as a system of related personalities, of God and finite persons, the dynamic principle and living content of which is determined, more or less, by the reciprocity of the I-Thou-relation. The view of the society of persons is also shown to have consequences for the understanding of the moral order as personal and impersonal ethics are distinguished, and, with a terminological shift in the later personalists, for the questions of the relation of ‘values’ to the person.
