Flew considers the great Kantian issues of "God, freedom, and immortality." He takes a new look at the arguments for the existence of God and the question of religious belief, and examines the claim that our lives can have meaning only by assuming the existence of God and human immortality. Throughout, Flew cleaves to the agnostic principle that we ought always to proportion our belief to the evidence.

As the title suggests, Antony Flew's _God, Freedom, and Immortality_ is a collection of independent essays on God, freedom, and immortality. Some of the essays -- esp. the essays on 'The Presumption of Atheism' and 'The Principle of Agnosticism' -- are quite good. Others, however, wear their date on their face. His essay on 'What are Cosmological Arguments?' does not even reference the kalam cosmological argument, which has become quite popular with theists since the writing of Flew's book. And his chapter on the free will defense defends the so-called 'logical' problem of evil by arguing for compatibilism, at the expense of neglecting the less controversial 'evidential' problem of evil.Was this review helpful?
