6. Beauty and design Religion within the Limits of Reason Alone (1793), a ‘hermeneutical rule’ of ‘moral interpretation’. All scripture and religious doctrine that conflict with reason must be interpreted allegorically, so as to express moral insights that gain vivacity, rather than validity, from their religious expression. The attempt to make the idea of God intelligible through images, and so to subsume God under the categories of the empirical world, is self‐contradictory.

Introduction you are real, that you are not just dreamt up by somebody (like Alice is dreamt by the Red King) dreaming about somebody reading a book on reality. This reflects a healthy psychological attitude. Most people do not believe they are dreaming most of the time (very few people believe they are dreaming when they are in fact doing so), do not assume that the material objects around them aren’t really there, and do not believe they are a character in someone else's novel. Yet never to have at least suspected whether things might not be exactly this

10. Lessons The American legal scholar, Carol Rose, has noted that ‘mature environmental law’ is ‘not pretty. It is past the stage of grand theory and well into the stage of acronyms and statutory sections.’ This book is proof of this. My journey along the songlines of environmental law has not resulted in a simple story. There is little here that can be summed up in a single idea or written down as a bullet point list. My journey does, however, yield lessons. Those lessons are particularly important to reflect on given the era we live in.

4. Friendships, families, pretend play, and the imagination advantages for social cognition and psychological understanding. Siblings can be both allies and rivals, offering opportunities for experiencing affection, reciprocity, support, and of course conflict. However, children’s friendships can deliver many of the same advantages. As single child families increase, children’s friendships are likely to prove increasingly important for social development.
