The Errors of Atheism is a response to the glaring gap that exists in analytical philosophy on the concept of God. While there is the large body of work that either defends or challenges orthodox Christian theistic arguments, there is a lack of analytical philosophical work articulating agnosticism as a critique of both theism and atheism.

J. Angelo Corlett shows that the conceptual depths of theism must be explored beyond orthodoxy in order to re-open the debate on the problem of God. His book is an agnostic's statement on the
current state of the debate about God's existence and where the discussion must go to make genuine philosophical progress instead of remaining in a dialectical stalemate.

About the Author:

J. Angelo Corlett is Professor of Philosophy and Ethics at San Diego State University, USA, and Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Ethics: An International Philosophical Review. He is the author of Terrorism: A Philosophical Analysis (2003) and Race, Racism, and Reparation (2003).

Review:

"This book contains a sustained and systematic critique of many of the'new atheists,' such as Dawkins, as well as a critique of traditionalorthodox theology. Corlett develops an innovative hybrid of processtheology and liberation theology, and he argues that it is not rationalto reject this view out of hand. In this age of rabid fundamentalismand increasingly 'in-your-face' atheism, Corlett offers an alternativepicture with considerable appeal. It is a book of breathtakingintellectual scope, and it stakes out an important, but thus farunder-appreciated, religious orientation." — John Martin Fischer, Professor of Philosophy, University of California, Riverside, USA.

"An important contribution to the current debate about God. Both theologians and philosophers should read this book." — James H. Cone, Charles Augustus Briggs Distinguished Professor of Systematic Theology, Union Theological Seminary, USA.

"This book is a provocative presentation of Corlett's own version of theism, and it also plausibly criticizes many stereotypes and exposes numerous errors. Corlett achieves extraordinary comprehensiveness in discussing a great deal of literature in philosophy of religion and theology, but the book should be accessible to general readers and of interest to many." —Robert Audi, Professor of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame, USA, and editor of The Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy.

Book Description Continuum Publishing Corporation, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This work fills the gap for a much needed analytical philosophical work articulating and defending agnosticism as a critique of both theism and atheism. The Errors of Atheism is a response to the glaring gap that exists in the analytical philosophical literature on the problem of whether or not God exists. While on the one hand there is the large body of work by orthodox Christian theists such as Alvin Plantinga and Richard Swinburne, and relatively few atheists like Kai Nielsen who challenge certain orthodox Christian theistic arguments and analysis, there is on the other hand a lack of analytical philosophical work articulating and defending agnosticism as a critique of both theism and atheism. Corlett argues that the conceptual depths of theism must be explored beyond orthodoxy in order to re-open the debate about whether or not God exists. The Errors of Atheism is a piece of analytical philosophy of religion that seeks to disrupt the prevalent way of thinking about the problem of God amongst atheists and theists alike. Philosophy of religion has been dominated by well-intentioned analytical philosophers, most all of whom presuppose various traditional Christian doctrines and thus do not take non-orthodox theism seriously, and by a few atheists who also presume that orthodox Christian theism is the only theism worth addressing. Professor Corlett, however, argues that the truth lies somewhere between these two positions. Seller Inventory # AA79781441158932
