            Challenging the New Atheism: Pragmatic Confrontations in the Philosophy of Religion (Hardback)

            This book presents a pragmatic response to arguments against religion made by the New Atheism movement. The author argues that analytic and empirical philosophies of religion-the mainstream approaches in contemporary philosophy of religion-are methodologically unequipped to addre...ss the Threefold Challenge made by popular New Atheist thinkers such as Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, and Daniel Dennett. The book has three primary motivations. First, it provides an interpretation of the New Atheist movement that treats their claims as philosophical arguments and not just rhetorical exercises or demagoguery. Second, it assesses and responds to these claims by elaborating four distinct contemporary philosophical perspectives- analytic philosophy, empirical philosophy, continental philosophy, and pragmatism-as well as contextualizing these perspectives in the history of the philosophy of religion. Finally, the book offers a metaphilosophical critique, returning again and again to the question of method. In the end, the author settles upon a modified version of pragmatism that he concludes is best suited for articulating the terms and stakes of the God Debate. Challenging the New Atheism will be of interest to scholars and students of American philosophy and philosophy of religion.

            Scientific Challenges to Common Sense Philosophy
             

            Scientific Challenges to Common Sense Philosophy (Hardback)

            Common sense philosophy holds that widely and deeply held beliefs are justified in the absence of defeaters. While this tradition has always had its philosophical detractors who have defended various forms of skepticism or have sought to develop rival epistemological views, recen...t advances in several scientific disciplines claim to have debunked the reliability of the faculties that produce our common sense beliefs. At the same time, however, it seems reasonable that we cannot do without common sense beliefs entirely. Arguably, science and the scientific method are built on, and continue to depend on, common sense. This collection of essays debates the tenability of common sense in the face of recent challenges from the empirical sciences. It explores to what extent scientific considerations-rather than philosophical considerations-put pressure on common sense philosophy. The book is structured in a way that promotes dialogue between philosophers and scientists. Noah Lemos, one of the most influential contemporary advocates of the common sense tradition, begins with an overview of the nature and scope of common sense beliefs, and examines philosophical objections to common sense and its relationship to scientific beliefs. Then, the volume features essays by scientists and philosophers of science who discuss various proposed conflicts between commonsensical and scientific beliefs: the reality of space and time, about the nature of human beings, about free will and identity, about rationality, about morality, and about religious belief. Notable philosophers who embrace the common sense tradition respond to these essays to explore the connection between common sense philosophy and contemporary debates in evolutionary biology, neuroscience, physics, and psychology.

            What You Can Learn From the Teachings of Jesus
              

            What You Can Learn From the Teachings of Jesus (Hardback)

            • In Stock US

            The teachings of Jesus include one hundred and one didactic lessons and forty parables that challenge the mind and the heart. Jesus taught with authority, and people listened and learned from him the things they needed to know. The didactic lessons teach us who Jesus is, how we c...an be filled with the Holy Spirit, what the nature of sin is, what the purpose of prayer is, how to serve God and others, how to be a good example, what things we should avoid in life, how to get to heaven, and how to be a disciple of Christ. The parables illustrate a spiritual or moral truth. Understanding a parable requires one to study it diligently and seek to learn its spiritual or moral meaning. Parables reveal truth only to those who desire to know what is true and maintain an open mind and eagerness to learn. If you can learn all that Jesus taught, you will be richly blessed and well prepared to live the best life and travel down the narrow road that leads to heaven.

            On Prayer and The Contemplative Life is a classic religious essay. The present generation in the fervour of its repentance is like to cast off too much. So many false principles and hasty deductions have been offered to its parents and grandparents in the name of science that it ...is becoming unduly suspicious of the scientific method.
