Éditeur : ROWMAN LITTLEFIELD, United States

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. In this important new book, David O Connor discusses both logical and empirical forms of the problem of inscrutable evil, perennially the most difficult philosophical problem confronting theism. Arguing that both a version of theism ( friendly theism ) and a version of atheism ( friendly atheism ) are justified on the evidence in the debate over God and evil, O Connor concludes that a warranted outcome is a philosophical detente between those two positions. On the way to that conclusion he develops two arguments from evil, a reformed version of the logical argument and an indirect version of the empirical argument, and deploys both against a central formulation of theism that he describes as orthodox theism. God and Inscrutable Evil makes a valuable contribution to contemporary debates in the philosophy of religion. N° de réf. du libraire ANB9780847687633

Synopsis : In this important new book, David O'Connor discusses both logical and empirical forms of the problem of inscrutable evil, perennially the most difficult philosophical problem confronting theism. Arguing that both a version of theism ("friendly theism") and a version of atheism ("friendly atheism") are justified on the evidence in the debate over God and evil, O'Connor concludes that a warranted outcome is a philosophical detente between those two positions. On the way to that conclusion he develops two arguments from evil, a reformed version of the logical argument and an indirect version of the empirical argument, and deploys both against a central formulation of theism that he describes as orthodox theism. God and Inscrutable Evil makes a valuable contribution to contemporary debates in the philosophy of religion.

Critique: [A] careful ... analysis of the challenge that the existence of evil presents to 'orthodox theism' ... a remarkable amount of material in compressed format, something that will well serve readers. -- T. Michael McNulty, S.J., Marquette University, Milwaukee Theological Studies This book will appeal to anyone who has ever asked why there seems to be so much unnecessary evil and suffering in the world. Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith This book includes an impressive discussion of the nature of evil. The book is full of creative thought experiments, detailed and incisive argument, and exposition and analysis that reveal an impressive command of much contemporary literature on this topic. -- R.D. Geivett, Biola University CHOICE, Fe. 99 Vol. 36 No.6 The most important book-length treatment of its kind in the past twenty years ... O'Connor's book will most certainly be the locus of debate for years to come. -- Daniel HowardSnyder, Seattle Pacific University ... excellent work ... chock-full of original, creative analyses and arguments. -- Del Kiernan-Lewis, Morehouse College The Journal Of Religion A number of O'Connor's arguments are persuasive. O'Coonor's central argument against Schlesinger's 'No-Best-Possible-World-Defence' seems well-taken. -- Katherin A. Rogers, University of Delaware Religious Studies, Vol. 35, 1999 This book is an substantial contribution to contemporary discussion of the evidential force of the fact of evil and the rationality of beleiving in God. Mind: A Quarterly Review of Philosophy O'Connor should be praised for forcefully bringing to our attention the centrality of the standard assumption in the debate over God and evil.
