About the book:

George Santayana (16 December 1863 in Madrid, Spain - 26 September 1952 in Rome, Italy) was a philosopher, essayist, poet and novelist. This volume espouse his opinion of religion in life: Experience has repeatedly confirmed that well-known maxim of Bacon's that "a little philosophy inclineth a man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion." At the same time, when Bacon penned that sage epigram... he forgot to add that the God to whom depth in philosophy brings back men's minds is far from being the same from whom a little philosophy estranges them. Matters of religion should never be matters of controversy. We neither argue with a lover about his taste, nor condemn him, if we are just, for knowing so human a passion. Fashion is something barbarous, for it produces innovation without reason and imitation without benefit. Happiness is the only sanction of life; where happiness fails, existence remains a mad and lamentable experiment.
