The first section I found to be the most interesting. Wainwright is a top notch Kant scholar, and you can see he has a passion for the man's work when he discusses Kant's argument for the existence of God. The arguments are so clear, so simple, and he defends them so well, I'm almost tempted to write in the margins 'QED'. I really thought Wainwright shed new light on this subject, and pulled effectively from other scholars who have done work on it. The same is true of his analysis of the argument from the phenomenology of conscience. His presentation, his analysis of possible objections and his counter-arguments are like water, this way truth lies. When the conceptual connections are so clear, and the arguments simple and direct, you just 'see' it. The section on the objectivity of value is a little less clear, the writing doesn't flow AS naturally, but the concluding section even of that chapter is pretty good. He ties it all together with a simple and direct argument from the content of the moral life to the conclusion God exists. Heck, the price of the book was worth just the first section of the book.
I thought the work on Divine command was less impressive.Read more ›
