A Parliament of Souls is the second volume of Limits and Renewals, a trilogy based on the Stanton lectures in the philosophy of religion delivered at Cambridge University in 1986-8. In this volume Professor Clark attempts to restate a traditional philosophy of mind, drawing upon philosophical and poetical resources that are often neglected in modern and post-modern thought, and emphasizing the moral and political implications of differing philosophies of mind and value. He presents a study of soul as it has traditionally been conceived and as it can be understood through imaginative attention to our changing moods, beliefs and fears. He argues that without that traditional concept we have little reason to believe that liberal values (rational thought and individual autonomy) are either possible or desirable.
