In his Morality and Religion, W. W. Bartley III states that ‘the chief aim of this study is to get clearer about the extent to which morality and religion may be interdependent’ (p. i). After stating various possible alternatives, in terms of the logical relationships of derivability and compatibility, which are relevant to this issue, Prof. Bartley in fact devotes his book to a consid eration of four views:
(1) Morality is reducible to religion.
(2) Religion is reducible to morality.
(3) Morality and religion are in conflict (partly, not wholly).
(4) Morality and religion are inseparable.
