Prospects for natural theology by Eugene Thomas Long( )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Natural theology, which suffered significantly in the eighteenth century as a result of the criticisms of David Hume and Immanuel Kant, appeared to be a terminal patient in the mid-twentieth century in the 1960s, however philosophers and theologians began to give renewed attention to the kinds of issues that natural theology was intended to address. During the past decade, the interest in natural theology - its place and role in discussions of religious knowledge - has reached new heights. This collection of essays provides a sample of the current status of natural theology among scholars. The first three essays lay the groundwork for a reconsideration of the arguments for the existence of God. Kenneth Schmitz shows how modern conceptions often mislead us in our efforts to understand the classical arguments for the existence of God. James Ross argues that prospects for natural theology have significantly brightened since the middle of this century as a result of our improved understanding of rational certainty. George I. Mavrodes, concerned with the question of proof and certainty, investigates why such philosophers as Swinburne and Plantinga avoid stronger claims for proofs for God's existence. The next three essays focus on natural theology and the limits of knowledge. Joseph J. Kockelmans contends that, from the perspective of hermeneutic philosophy, natural theology, in the sense of Wolff, Baumgarten, and other authors of the precritical tradition, should be abandoned. He acknowledges the possibility of a regional ontology but emphasizes the role of negative theology. Frederick Ferre analyzes the thought of Moses Maimonides - a paradigmatic example of negative theology - and finds that even Maimonides finds a foundation for positive affirmations of God in worship and in arguments justifying the radical simplicity of God. John D. Caputo claims that one cannot avoid the mediation of language in theology; thus, the absolutely negative theology proposed by the French theologian Jean-Luc Marion is impossible. The last group of essays provides alternative approaches to natural theology. W. Norris Clarke, S. J., challenges contemporary views of relativism, Kantianism, and empiricism that are hostile to natural theology. Bowman Clarke, who bases much of his approach on Whitehead and contemporary logic, maintains that his proposal of natural theology has much in common with that of St. Thomas. Ninian Smart argues for a form of natural theology that would be sensitive to conflicting world views while avoiding sheer relativism. Eugene Thomas Long proposes an empirical approach that does not ignore the role of argument and that does not reduce religious knowledge to a matter of appeals to the authority of self-authenticating experience or tradition. The final essay, by Louis Dupre, is simultaneously an argument for a more inclusive approach to natural theology and a response to what some consider the most serious challenge to natural theology in this century, the problem of evil
Ethics of belief : essays in tribute to D.Z. Phillips by Eugene Thomas Long( )

18 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is presented as a tribute to D.Z. Phillips and the introduction by Eugene Long includes a brief discussion of Phillips' life and work. The first six articles were originally written at the invitation of Phillips for a conference on the ethics of belief held at Claremont Graduate University. Unfortunately Phillips died unexpectedly July 25, 2006 and was unable to participate in the conference. Two additional essays were invited by the editors to help add Phillips' voice to the discussion. Essays by Allen Wood, Richard Amesbury and Van Harvey discuss the question of the ethics of belief in the context of the evidentialist principle most frequently associated with W.K. Clifford. Essays by Ronney Mourad, Jennifer Faust and Robert Audi are concerned with the voluntariness of belief, the persuasive power of arguments and differing conceptions of faith, belief and acceptance. The final two essays by John Whittaker and Anselm Min focus on Phillips' understanding of the logic and rationality of religious belief. The book concludes with a tribute to Phillips written by Patrick Horn. Ethics of Belief: Essays in Tribute to D.Z. Phillips should be of particular interest to upper level undergraduates, graduate students and professionals in the fields of philosophy, religious studies and theology. Reprinted from The International Journal for Philosophy of Religion, 63:1-3 (2008)

Self and other : essays in continental philosophy of religion by Eugene Thomas Long( )

21 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is well known that the philosophy of religion has flourished in recent decades in Anglo-American philosophy, where philosophers are bringing new techniques to the study of many of the traditional problems. Although there is more diversity in Anglo-American philosophy of religion than is sometimes recognized, it nevertheless provides a body of literature with a recent history that is sufficiently coherent to enable commentators to identify the movement with some clarity. The story is somewhat different with the emerging field of continental philosophy of religion, where many of the leading contributors are not generally known as philosophers of religion and where many of the approaches are based upon a critique of traditional western theories of rationality, experience and theism and an extension of the more traditional boundaries of philosophical reflection on religion. The essays in this volume focus on some of the topics that are shaping recent continental philosophy of religion, including self and other, evil and suffering, religion and society and the relation between philosophy and theology. Contributors are Pamela Sue Anderson, Maeve Cooke, Richard A. Cohen, Fred Dallmayr, Hent de Vries, William Franke, Anselm K. Min, Michael Purcell, Calvin O. Schrag, Merold Westphal, Edith Wyschogrod and the editor Eugene Thomas Long." -- Publisher description

God, reason, and religions : new essays in the philosophy of religion by Eugene Thomas Long( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of original articles, written by leading contemporary philosophers of religion, is presented in celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the International Journal for Philosophy of Religion. Following the Introduction, in which the Editor develops the changing philosophical context for the creation and development of the journal, articles by William Rowe, William Alston and Bowman Clarke focus on the concept of God. Rowe considers what conceptions of God may fit with the tradition of American naturalism. Alston argues that irrealism is subversive of the Christian conception of God, and Bowman Clarke analyzes two different process conceptions of God and their metaphysical frameworks. Next, Richard Swinburne argues that God can allow creatures to suffer evils so long as on balance the package of their lives is good. The next four essays are concerned with the role of philosophical reason in the analysis of religion. John Smith argues for a position in which philosophy and religion are understood to be complementary and Robert Scharlemann analyzes and expands upon Paul Tillich's understanding of philosophy of religion. David Burrell takes up the question of the relation between reason, faith and analogical language and Merold Westphal explores the postmodern critique of metaphysics and religion. The last two essays are concerned with the issue of religious pluralism. Philip Quinn analyzes John Hick's and William Alston's approach to religious diversity and argues for an approach which does not impugn the rationality of those who lean towards thicker religious phenomenologies and thinner theologies. Robert Neville argues for a new and comparative approach to the philosophy of religion which takes into account our increased knowledge of the major religious faiths. The book also includes a twenty-five year index of articles and reviews published in the International Journal for Philosophy of Religion
Issues in contemporary philosophy of religion by Eugene Thomas Long( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of original articles, written by leading contemporary European and American philosophers of religion, is presented in celebration of the publication of the fiftieth volume of the International Journal for Philosophy of Religion. Following the Editor's Introduction, John Macquarrie, Adriaan Peperzak, and Hent de Vries take up central themes in continental philosophy of religion. Macquarrie analyzes postmodernism and its influence in philosophy and theology. Peperzak argues for a form of universality different from that of modern philosophy, and de Vries analyzes an intrinsic and structural relationship between religion and the media. The next three essays discuss issues in analytic philosophy of religion. Philip Quinn argues that religious diversity reduces the epistemic status of exclusivism and makes it possible for a religious person to be justified while living within a pluralistic environment. William Wainwright plumbs the work of Jonathan Edwards in order to better understand debates concerning freedom, determinism, and the problem of evil, and William Hasker asks whether theological incompatibilism is less inimical to traditional theism than some have supposed. Representing the Thomist tradition, Fergus Kerr challenges standard readings of Aquinas on the arguments for the existence of God. David Griffin analyzes the contributions of process philosophy to the problem of evil and the relation between science and religion. Illustrating comparative approaches, Keith Ward argues that the Semitic and Indian traditions have developed a similar concept of God that should be revised in view of post-Enlightenment theories of the individual and the historical. Keith Yandell explores themes in the Indian metaphysical tradition and considers what account of persons is most in accord with reincarnation and karma doctrines. Feminist philosophy of religion is represented in Pamela Anderson's article, in which she argues for a gender-sensitive and more inclusive approach to the craving for infinitude

Philosophy of religion for a new century : essays in honor of Eugene Thomas Long by Jeremiah Hackett( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philosophy of Religion for a New Century" represents the work of nineteen scholars presented at a conference in honor of Eugene T. Long at the University of South Carolina, April 5-6, 2002. This volume is a good example of philosophy in dialogue; there is both respect and genuine disagreement. First, an account of our present situation in the Philosophy of Religion is given, leading to a discussion of the very idea of a 'Christian Philosophy' and the coherence of the traditional concept of God. The implications of science and a concern for the environment in our concepts of God are carefully examined. A discussion follows on the possibility of speech about God and silence about God. Since much of modern European philosophy is concerned with the 'Death of God' theme, the positions of Nietzsche and some of his twentieth-century interpreters are presented. There are presentations on Feminist Approaches to Philosophy of Religion, and Comparative Religion is examined in relation to cultures and the demands of rationality. The volume concludes with a critical dialogue on the relation of Religious Discourse to the Public Sphere. Developing global awareness has led to significant change in the Philosophy of Religion. One-dimensional approaches have given way to honest dialogue. The traditional boundaries between the secular and the religious have shifted, and new approaches to traditional problems are required. This volume presents examples of these new approaches. Represents the work of nineteen scholars presented at a conference in honor of Eugene T Long at the University of South Carolina, April 5-6, 2002. This volume offers an account of the situation in the Philosophy of Religion. The implications of science and a concern for the environment in concepts of God are also examined

Analytic philosophy of religion by James F Harris( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book should prove to be an invaluable resource and reference for both scholars and students interested in any problem in the area of analytic philosophy of religion. Analytic Philosophy of Religion is a thorough examination of the major issues that have occupied twentieth-century Anglo-American, analytic philosophy of religion and the positions that have been developed by the major figures in the field. The author also develops his own critical reactions to these positions and, in many cases, his own positions as well. Attention is focused on what have proven to be the enduring, major problems of analytic philosophy of religion: the development and nature of analytic philosophy, the problem of religious language, the nature of God, arguments for the existence of God, religious experience, religious epistemology, religion and science, the problem of evil, naturalism and humanism, religion and ethics, and religious pluralism.
