A volume from the private library of the Reverend John Henry Augustus Bomberger (1817-1890), founder and first President of Ursinus College.
Murdock was a New England clergyman, theologian, and philosopher. Bomberger found comfort in such "Puritan Rationalism" as well as in McCosh's "Scottish Realism" in his relentless efforts to prove Nevin and Schaff at Mercersburg to be victims of German Absolute Idealism. The Murdock volume, for example, takes to task the "pantheism" inherent in the works of Schelling and Hegel - a favorite Bomberger theme.
