9780199263479: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion

The third edition of An Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion provides a critical examination of some fundamental questions posed by religious belief: What does belief in God amount to? Can God's existence be proved? Is there life after death?

Brian Davies considers these questions and many others, sometimes offering provocative answers of his own, but more often giving readers room to each independent conclusions. He explains how a range of thinkers have approached the subject -- including Anselm, Aquinas, Descartes, Leibniz, Hume, and Kant -- and also discusses how contemporary author now engage with the issues involved. Completely revised to cover the latest developments in the field, the new edition of this established textbook will prove the ideal introduction for all students of the philosophy of religion.

About the Author:


Brian Davies is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Fordham University.

Review:


"Davies' book is among the best -- if not the best -- introductions to philosophy of religion. It is engaging, clear, rich in arguments, and provocative. This book provides a wonderful entry point into the field as well as offering the trained scholar some powerful, challenging arguments."--Charles Taliaferro, St. Olaf's College


"I am stunned at the completeness of the work, and especially at its equanimity in approaching and helping others to grasp quite contrary philosophical positions . . . a masterpiece of its genre."--David B. Burrell, University of Notre Dame


"Once again, Davies' treatment of the issues is sufficiently engaged to excite the reader's attention, and sufficiently sympathetic to alternative viewpoints to meet the needs of a beginner in the subject."--Mark Wynn, University of Exeter
