Christianity today embodies an ever increasing programme of activism. The growth of this element in the Christian religion during the past sixty years has been contemporaneous with a similar development in the field of philosophy. Towards the end of the last century, the philosophy of pragmatism became an important and a most popular element within the main body of philosophy. Pragmatism, with its distinctive interest in the practical life of man, had a swift and widespread appeal, and as a result became established in certain schools as the most important element within philosophy.
