Abstract:

"This volume deals with proofs for the existence of God. This is probably the approach that most people think of in connection with the philosophy of religion. It will examine the very programme of proving the existence of God, and the foundationalism implied in that programme, as well as looking at attempts to prove and to disprove the existence of God." "Offering theistic proofs is an aspect of natural theology which attempts to reach sound conclusions about the existence and nature of God based on human reasoning ability alone. Davis explains what theistic proofs are and what they try to accomplish. The question of what constitutes a good or successful argument for the existence of God will also be addressed. Coverage includes the famous ontological argument, religious realism and foundationalism."--Jacket.
