Fiske is was a popular lecturer booked in every major city of the United States and Britain before the turn of the 20th century. He displays the dominance of Unitarian Universalist thinking among the rising middle and curious classes. This set of 19 volumes displays the considered eloquence of one of the most educated (Harvard) thinkers of the age in the field of history and evolutionary philosophy. Unafraid of approaching Religion with a rational mind, he illustrates both sides of arguments fairly. For example, while he clearly sides with Lessing, his description of the doctrinaire Goetze is wonderful if not sympathetic. [VI.196]
