He postulated that all knowledge is relative and that all objects of knowledge are empirical. This view is presented as a common-sense approach which lies at the bottom of all truth. It was important to Abbot that there is an absolute and necessary correlation between a priori and a posteriori knowledge because it bridges the chasm between subjective and objective knowledge. During the years Abbot served as editor of The Index, his philosophy was focused on the support of Free Religion and against the political power of Christianity in America.
The retention of this commitment to Jesus in the preamble led many Unitarians, and other liberal religionists, to form the Free Religion Association (FRA) in 1867, with Abbot as a key figure in this movement. In 1869 Abbot became minister of the Unitarian Society of Toledo, Ohio, on the condition that the congregation withdraw from the National Unitarian Conference and abandon the name Unitarian. In 1870 Abbot became the founding editor of The Index, which was considered the unofficial publication of the FRA.
Outlook became increasingly secular with the profound disillusionment following World War I. With the gradual demise of progressivism, Abbott’s influence waned. Ernest Hamlin Abbott assumed editorship of Outlook after his father’s death. Abbott died on 22 September 1922 in New York City. If Ever Two Were One: A Private Diary of Love Eternal, ed.
