Excerpt from Bishop Butler: An Appreciation With the Best Passages of His Writings Selected and Arranged
Butler has no biography. Butler's books are his whole biography. What Jowett so well says of Plato's writings may also be said of Butler's: The progress of his writings is the history of his life. We have no other authentic life of him. His writings are the true self of the philosopher, stripped of the accidents of time and place. Butler's school boy letters to Clarke are the best biography Of his boyhood and youth, and his Rolls Sermons.
