These two men do not appear to have had successors in their way of thinking. I have been told -these are matters on which I do not have extensive first-hand information - that in the structure of their ceremonies and in the use of texts there has been a tendency in the Church of Rome and other Christian churches to play down the emotion-evoking mystery element in the language and form of service and to emphasise the more matter-of-fact element. Could anything be more perverse and stupid? I would infer that the average level of intellect among the Christian clergy from the highest level downwards has, subject to distinguished exceptions, deteriorated from its level in the nineteenth century.
Finally, it is possible that, although the mentors would not recognise the formal explanation of Kant, they do understand at a deeper level of consciousness the essence of his principle. The most notable example of 'mercy lies' is in the case of mortally sick patients. Such lies do have an effect on a doctor's credibility. But it is probably more comforting to be told 'You will recover', even though you know that the doctor may be telling a mercy lie, than to be told 'You cannot recover'. ) The principle applies in similar cases.
I forbear to discuss the usage of some writers who have drawn a distinction between 'probable' and 'likely'. I am not sure if the Wykeham Professor has provided a definition. I suggest that before one has defined probability one can apprehend the nature of a situation in which one knows for certain that one will have for an equal time each of a thousand identical experiences, but has no idea which of those thousand the present one is. Will not this serve to generate a definition of probability?
