  JOSEPH BUTLER - LoveToKnow Article on JOSEPH BUTLER   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Butler seems willing to rest satisfied with hi opponents admission that the being of God is proved by reason, but it would be hard to discover how, upon his own conception of the nature and limits of reason, such a proof could ever be given.
To Butler the Christian religion, and by that he meant the orthodox Church of England system, was a moral scheme revealed by a special act of the divine providence, the truth of which was to be judged by the ordinary canons of evidence.
Butler s moral theory, like those of his English contemporaries and successors, is defective from not perceiving that the notion of duty can have real significance only when connecte-I with the will or practical reason, and that only in reason which wills itself have we a principle capable of development into an ethical system.

 Joseph Butler [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Butler's famous encounter with John Wesley has only recently be reconstructed in as full detail as seems possible given the state of the surviving evidence, and we are now left with little hope of ever knowing what their actual relationship was.
Butler tried to show, as a refutation of the practice of his day (as he perceived it) that morals and religion are natural extensions of the common way of life usually taken for granted, and thus that those who would dispense with them bear a burden of proof they are unable to discharge.
Butler does sometimes refer to the conscience as the voice of God, but contrary to what is sometimes alleged, he never relies on divine authority in asserting the supremacy, the universality or the reliability of conscience.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Joseph
Summoned before Pharaoh, Joseph declared that both dreams signified that seven years of plenty would immediately be followed by seven years of famine, and further suggested that one-fifth of he produce of the years of plenty be laid by as provision for the years of famine.
And so Joseph brought it to pass that the former owners of landed property — with the exception, however, of the priests — became simple tenants of the king and paid to the royal treasury, as it were, an annual rent of one-fifth of the produce of the soil (xlvi, 28-xlvii, 26).
Finally, to the Patriarch Joseph, as to Jesus, it was given to inaugurate a new order of things for the greater power and glory of the monarch to whom he owed his exaltation.

Butler was heavily influenced by the natural law school; he too saw the universe functioning in an orderly manner under the rule of God.
Butler gives the example of the love that parents have for their children: upon reflection we realize that such love is appropriate, and we give it to our children—and such approval by conscience will carry us further through the hardships of life than mere affection acting alone.
Butler’s primary purpose was to reach these people, in a manner they could understand-- not to convince skeptics to convert, though indeed Butler hoped that they would through his writings perhaps see what he perceived as the logical and satisfying unity of Christian ethics.
