9780877843412: Metaphysics: Constructing a World View (Contours of Christian Philosophy)

What is ultimately real? What is God like? Do human beings have minds and souls or only brains in bodies? Are humans free agents or are all human acts determined by prior circumstances? Through insightful analysis and careful evaluation, William Hasker helps readers answer these questions and thereby construct a world view to make sense of the universe and the people in it.

About the Author:

William Hasker (Ph.D., University of Edinburgh) is professor emeritus of philosophy at Huntington College in Huntington, Indiana. His books include Metaphysics: Constructing a World View; God, Time, and Knowledge; Reason and Religious Belief (with Michael Peterson, David Basinger and Bruce Reichenbach); The Openness of God (with Clark Pinnock, Richard Rice, John Sanders and David Basinger); Philosophy of Religion: Selected Readings (edited with Michael Peterson, David Basinger and Bruce Reichenbach); The Emergent Self; Middle Knowledge: Theory and Applications (edited with David Basinger and Eef Dekker) and Providence, Evil and the Openness of God.

Review:

"Christians who want to love God with their minds will welcome Hasker's lucid introduction to the nature of metaphysical thinking." (Clark H. Pinnock, McMaster Divinity College)

"A fine introduction to both the subject matter and the process of doing philosophy as a Christian. It offers a blend of the analytic and personal which is too rarely found in contemporary philosophy." (Don C. Postema, Bethel College)

"Professor Hasker has produced an excellent introduction to metaphysics which avoids oversimplification and dognmatism, assesses major positions, takes some controversial stances, and is alert to the theological implications of metaphysical viewpoints." (Keith E. Yandell, University of Wisconsin)
