About this title


All these essays are concerned with theological topics but are written from a philosophical viewpoint. Dr Kenny examines the nature of theological thinking, and the part played in it by logical analysis and by appeal to tradition. He studies the idea of God as a necessary being and discusses the relationship between different ideas of God and different notions of necessity. He examines the nature of mystical experience, and presents and criticises the argument from design. The problem of the relationship between divine power and human freedom is discussed with special reference to the writings of Chrysostom, Aquinas and Wyclif. Finally, the inter-relationship between metaphysics, morals and politics is illustrated in a discussion of the morality of abortion and the roles of the Church and State. Among the author's many books are "The Ivory Tower", "The Legacy of Wittgenstein", "Action, Emotion and Will" and "The Path From Rome".
