It is quite clear that James, if (which I doubt) he ever read Fechner's long chapter on "God and the World" in Zendavesta, misunderstood or forgot its message. I say this because Fechner's view meets James's basic requirements that there be an open future for God and that our choices make Page 28 a contingent difference to him. So far from recognizing this common ground James writes as though Fechner's God were simply one more version of "the absolute" for whom the future is a closed book.

I agree with him and themwith qualifications. Gilson once wrote that Saint Thomas "never doubted" the axioms of his thinking. " In philosophy no axioms have standing unless and until the possibility has been seriously considered that they are at best merely plausible, rather than genuinely self-evident and certain. We have had too many illustrations of the risks of axiomatic assertion to dispense with caution at this point. I shall now give an example of a seemingly self-evident truth which for two thousand years escaped critical examination, but which proved quite vulnerable once it had been so examined.
