Format: Hardcover
Boyle On Atheism is a compilation of writings by seventeenth-century scientist-philosopher Robert Boyle (1627-91), who throughout his life felt a deep opposition to atheism and planned to publish a text delineating his objections. Though he died before publishing a book on the subject, his many writings rationally resisting atheism survive. Now J.J. MacIntosh (Professor, Dept. of Philosophy, University of Calgary) presents Boyle's transcribed and edited papers, with extensive and informative notations. Boyle On Atheism presents Robert Boyle's views on the causes and remedies of atheism, the nature of God, arguments for God's existence, the virtues of Christianity, and deconstructs the character of atheists as well as the deficiencies in their arguments. A valuable insight not only into philosophical and religious debate, but also greater understanding of seventeenth century society.
