Available to ship within 1-5 days
An Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion provides a critical examination of the fundamental questions posed by religious belief: What does it mean to believe in God? Can God's existence be proven? Is there life after death? Brian Davies considers these questions and many others, sometimes offering provocative answers of his own, but more often giving students room to form their own conclusions. In addition to exploring the views of several classic philosophers of religion--including Anselm, Aquinas, Descartes, Leibniz, Hume, and Kant--Davies surveys a variety of contemporary thinkers. Revised and updated to cover the latest developments in the field, the new edition of this influential textbook provides an ideal introduction for all students of the philosophy of religion.
