An Introduction to Design Arguments

Full Product Description

The history of design arguments stretches back to before Aquinas, who claimed that things which lack intelligence nevertheless act for an end to achieve the best result. Although science has advanced to discredit this claim, it remains true that many biological systems display remarkable adaptations of means to ends. Versions of design arguments have persisted over the centuries and culminated in theories which propose an intelligent designer of the universe. This volume is the only comprehensive survey of two thousand years of debate, drawing on both historical and modern literature to identify, clarify and assess critically the many forms of design argument for the existence of God. It provides a neutral, informative coverage of the topic from antiquity to Darwin, and includes concise primers on probability and cosmology. It will be of great value to upper-level undergraduates and graduates in philosophy of religion, theology, and philosophy of science.

An Introduction to Design Arguments by Benjamin C. Jantzen was published by Cambridge University Press in February 2014. The ISBN for An Introduction to Design Arguments is 9780521183031.
