The "spiritual" philosophy of Maurice Blondel (1861-1949). He concentrated on analyzing the meaning of human action. Ideally every human act should include an awareness of its purpose, which is to be related to God. Human acts are more perfect as a person is conscious of why he is acting. Blondelianism has especially influenced the progressive school of Neo-Thomism.
