Michael J. Almeida presents a powerful argument which holds that several widely believed and largely undisputed objections to the idea of the existence of God are in fact just philosophical dogmas. He challenges some of the most well-entrenched principles in philosophical theology, which have served as basic assumptions in influential apriori, atheological arguments. But most theists also maintain that the principles express apriori necessary truths, including those principles that are presumed to follow from the nature of an essentially omnipotent, essentially omniscient, essentially perfectly good and necessarily existing being. Among the atheological arguments that deploy these philosophical dogmas are the Logical Problem of Evil, the Logical Problem of the Best Possible World, the Logical Problem of Good Enough Worlds, the Problem of Divine Freedom, the Problem of No Best World, and the Evidential Problem of Evil. In Freedom, God, and Worlds Almeida claims that these arguments present no important challenge to the existence of an Anselmian God. Not only are these philosophical principles false, they are necessarily false.

About the Author:


Michael J. Almeida teaches philosophy at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Review:

"Almeida defends a view implying that it is not an a priori necessary truth that God has the essential properties of perfect goodness, omnipotence, omniscience, or necessary existence. The book ... develops this view with exceptional rigor and detail. Summing Up: Highly recommended." P. K. Moser, Choice

"... a highly stimulating and provocative reconsideration of some familiar theological disputes that is also of relevance to the science and religion dialogue." Science & Religion @ Edinburgh

"Almeida has produced a compelling and challenging book that is conversant with, and demands the attention of, contemporary debates in philosophy of religion" - The Expository Times
