God, Evil, and Ethics
presents the basic elements of the philosophy of religion tradition in a new and provocative way. The authors original philosophical narrative is interspersed with rich selections from Plato, Boethius, Thomas Aquinas, Anselm, Pascal, Descartes, Paley, Leibniz, Hume, Hegel, Kant, Mill, Stephen, Royce, James, and Clifford. Included are Platos complete Phaedo
, Humes complete essays "Of Miracles" and "On Suicide," several other unabridged works, and many excerpted pieces. The history and concepts of philosophy of religion emerge more clearly through this integration and interrelation of classical texts with modern summary and interpretation.
The aim of God, Evil, and Ethics is to bring together as much important material as possible, as logically as possible, in as few pages as possible for high-quality "one-stop shopping" at a reasonable cost. It is appropriate for students in four-year college, junior college, community college, upper-level prep school, and post-graduate non-credit enrichment courses in the philosophy of religion, as well as for the intelligent general reader.
