One of the world's best-known philosophers argues that there is no good or sufficient natural reason to believe: (a) that the universe is created by a conscious, personal, willing and doing Being; (b) that such a Being has nevertheless provided his (or her or its) creatures with a Revelation; or (c) that we should either hope or fear some future for ourselves after

Overview

One of the world's best-known philosophers argues that there is no good or sufficient natural reason to believe: (a) that the universe is created by a conscious, personal, willing and doing Being; (b) that such a Being has nevertheless provided his (or her or its) creatures with a Revelation; or (c) that we should either hope or fear some future for ourselves after death. He also examines: (a) the perennial charge that a naturalistic world-outlook presupposes values for which it cannot itself make room and (b) those sociologists of belief who refute themselves by refusing to admit that there is such a thing as objective knowledge. He also discusses Marx and classical Marxism, and includes four essays in what has come to be called applied philosophy, wherein Flew tackles the issues of voluntary euthanasia, psychology and mental health, race discrimination, and freedom and human nature.

Inaugurating the Prometheus Lecture Series, this collection of clear and compelling essays by distinguished philosopher Flew (philosophy emeritus, U. of Reading, UK) addresses the many and diverse aspects of atheistic humanism, and is arranged in four parts: fundamentals of unbelief; defending knowledge and responsibility; scientific socialism?; and applied philosophy. Most of the essays draw more or less heavily on previous publications. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Everything is organized, in order, and clear. If you're an atheist it'll add ideas to your philosophy, and if you're a theist it'll test your faith a little. Its all in good fun. (hehe)
