Reshaping Natural Theology

Full Product Description

Is nature creation or merely the product of non-intentional, natural processes? Mats Wahlberg aimsto recover the Christian sense that it is obvious that nature is creation. Heargues that biological nature has expressive propertiessimilar inkind to human behaviour and art, and we may therefore be able to perceive nature as creation -- as expressive of the mind of a creator. The existence of a creator need not (as in traditional natural theology) be inferred from nature's non-expressive properties. The book's proposal is compatible with the fact that biological organisms have evolved by natural selection. The viability of the proposal depends, however, on the rejection of certain common assumptions about the nature of mind and perception -- assumptions that may rightly be called 'Cartesian'. The author presents and defends an anti-Cartesian outlook on mind and perception, drawn mainly from philosopher John McDowell's work. The outlook provides the materials for a dissolution of the problems confronting the book's version of natural theology.

Reshaping Natural Theology by Mats Wahlberg was published by Palgrave Macmillan in May 2012. The ISBN for Reshaping Natural Theology is 9780230393134.
