A Collection of Essays by Steven Colborne features 12 essays which tackle many of the major problems of philosophy and theology.


The following essays are included in this volume: 'A Listener-Centred, Dialectical Model for Popular Music Analysis', 'Heraclitus and the Nature of Change', 'The Schopenhauerian Concept of Will', 'The Soul in Christianity and Platonism', 'George Eliot and Feuerbach on God and the Good', 'Karl Rahner's Anthropology', 'Karl Barth's Doctrine of Election', 'The Trinity and Suffering', 'A Letter to George Eliot about God and the Good', 'God and Suffering: Approaches and Issues', 'An Almighty Predicament: A Discourse on the Arguments For and Against Christianity', and 'The Only Question You Ever Need Ask'.


The first essay in this volume is Colborne's first-class undergraduate dissertation, written during his final year of study at the University of Westminster. The essay presents a radical approach to music analysis.


The majority of the included essays were written during Colborne's postgraduate studies at Heythrop College, University of London. While Colborne enrolled to study an MA in Philosophy and Religion, he was admitted to psychiatric hospital prior to completing his studies. He graduated with a Postgraduate Certificate.

The Heythrop essays include a discussion of the nature of the human soul, as well as various discourses related to the subject of suffering. Colborne also examines the ideas of several important figures in Western philosophy, including Heraclitus, Schopenhauer, and others. The ideas of various contemporary writers and theologians are also explored, including Karl Rahner, Karl Barth, and George Eliot.


The final two essays in the book were written some years later. These essays offer profound insights into the divine sovereignty versus human free will predicament, with specific reference to Christian theology. As with so much of Colborne's work, the problem of suffering is a key focus.


A Collection of Essays by Steven Colborne presents some of Colborne's finest work and readers will finish the book having gained a thorough understanding of Colborne's philosophical worldview and most important academic contributions.
