Sample text

This Isaiah is even more emphatic than earlier authors that Israel's coming prosperity will be associated with its abandoning the notion that God's care and attention are focused exclusively on the Land and its inhabitants. " (Is 66:1-2). The Fatherhood of Yahweh, it is stressed t embraces all humankind (Is 63:15-16; 64:7-8). Isaiah's new Israel is a cosmopolitan community of great size in which foreigners from distant parts can become priests and Levites (Is 66:18-21). Not ANCIENT LITERATURE 33 only foreigners but also eunuchs are now to be included in that community (Is 56:3-8).

And what light does this throw on the relation between economics and theology which is the subject of this book? The modern view that economics can only tell us about facts (if even that) and not at all about values has its origin, as I have suggested, in the dichotomy between "science" and "art" drawn by classical and pre-classical political economists. But the distinction was first made sharp and explicit by Richard Whately and subsequently canonized by his friend and former pupil, Nassau Senior.

For God has not revealed to us a system of morality such as would have been needed for Beings who had no other means of distinguishing right from wrong. On the contrary, the inculcation of virtue and reprobation of vice in Scripture are in such alone as seems to presuppose a natural power, or a capacity for acquiring the power, to distinguish them (p. 32). A moral sense of some kind, an ability to perceive a "natural law," is necessary for right conduct: thus Whately opposed head-on the consequentialist-utilitarian-ethic which Paley (an ally) had maintained in common with Jeremy Bentham (the enemy).
