By Daniel A. Dombrowski
Daniel A. Dombrowski explores the heritage of the concept that of God from the viewpoint of neoclassical, or approach, theism. His neoclassical method assuages the present trouble in philosophical theism, stuck among a safeguard of classical theism and assertions of non secular skepticism. as a substitute, the paintings deals Charles Hartshorne’s concept of a God who constantly evolves, relatively in contrast to the allegedly ideal determine of extra conventional, and more and more unsatisfactory, money owed. Dombrowski surveys the classical theists and their roots in old Greek philosophy prior to turning to contributions from the 16th via 20th centuries, eventually discussing twenty-three thinkers. the most important figures during this historical past are Plato, who paradoxically supplied the philosophical foundation either for classical and neoclassical strategies, and 3 nice figures in strategy theism: Henri Bergson, Alfred North Whitehead, and Hartshorne. the idea that of God has a wealthy previous; this publication argues that it may well have a wealthy destiny as well.
