Book Description

April 14, 1988 0198244592 978-0198244592
Basing his argument for the existence of God on the continuous nature of the temporal world, Braine here posits that the philosophy of religion cannot be continued as a separate discipline: the solution of its problems will be the fruit of the correct telesis of the problems of general philosophy in their complex interrelationships.

Editorial Reviews


"Bold, ambitious, and broad in scope....A creative and original contribution to the field."--Philosophical Review

"It ventures out boldly to lay down a robust, realist metaphysics of real substances as active agents exercising active causal power in time. It then draws from this a carefully worked out argument to the existence of God as the necessary transtemporal cause of the whole temporal order of agents....Aided by a profound and remarkably accurate understanding of the basic positions of Thomas Aquinas in metaphysics and natural theology...most of his supporting arguments...are well taken and show an extraordinary gift for clear metaphysical thinking in a fresh way that I find most invigorating."--America

"Braine has something important to say. His central project in The Reality of Time and the Existence of God is to construct an essentially Aristotelian-Thomistic metaphysicout of the resourcesof contemporary analytical philosophy. This project is inherently worthwhile, and at many points Braine carries it off with distinction."--International Studies in Philosophy

"Undoubtedly an important work that will receive much attention"--Choice
