1 Arthur Bills (1938) By the close of the 1930s, arbiters of the status quo had begun to mount worried defenses of scientific method that sought to rebut what they saw as the pernicious effect of oppositional sensibilities such as those expressed by Allport and the Murphys. "2 C. C. "3 This was precisely the challenge that Allport and the Murphys took up in their dissent from the status quo during the 1930s: that of upsetting the "essential features of play" in the hope of offering a "better game," one in which the grounds for scientific authority would be refigured.

In the beginning, religion was "the relationship of the social group with its heavenly chieftain," for Jehovah, Fosdick suggested, was not at first "thought of as caring for individuals one by one.
