Journal of Religious Ethics 1:73 - 85 (1973)
Objecting to a restrictive view of morality that limits moral philosophy and religious ethics to what can be logically displayed, this essay seeks to expand our understanding of morality in a way that permits one to account for intentionality in the moral life. It claims that <span class='Hi'>religion</span> makes a contribution to our moral behavior beyond that of motivating one to be moral. The author argues that a right understanding of the relationship of thought and action is essential if we are correctly to understand the relationship of <span class='Hi'>religion</span> and morality. He concludes that "story" and principles have interdependent roles to play in the full variety of our moral life.
