The Existence of God

Historians of medieval Jewish philosophy have long debated what, if anything, the esoteric message of Moses Maimonides' (1138-1204) philosophical work, The Guide of the Perplexed, was. Apparent self-contradictions in Maimonides' text led scholars to speculate about the dissident if not heretic opinions that the medieval Jewish philosopher secretly held without stating them openly. This study claims that the central enterprise of Maimonidean thought was not the esoteric acceptance or refusal of religious dogmas but developing a consistent argument to prove God's existence. This task was far more difficult (and interesting) than it is usually assumed in secondary literature. Maimonides' proofs for God's existence are seemingly not consistent with his argumentation to prove the creation of the world. Eliminating this inconsistency was one of the greatest challenges for Maimonidean philosophy and theology. The analysis attempted here sheds light on the various ways Maimonides and some of his medieval readers tried to cope with the problem and may benefit not only students of medieval Jewish philosophy alone but anyone interested in the question whether God exists.

Rethinking the BSE Crisis

In 1986, the emergence of a novel brain disease in British cattle presented a unique challenge to scientists. How that challenge was addressed has been the subject of a public inquiry and numerous academic studies conducted to date. However, none of these investigations has sought to examine the reasoning of scientists during this critical period in the public health of the UK. Using concepts and techniques in informal logic, argumentation and fallacy theory, this study reconstructs and evaluates the reasoning of scientists in the ten-year period between 1986 and 1996. Specifically, a form of presumptive reasoning is described in which extensive use is made of arguments traditionally identified as informal fallacies. In the context of the adverse epistemic conditions that confronted scientists during the BSE epidemic, these arguments were anything but fallacious, serving instead to confer a number of epistemic gains upon scientific inquiry.This book argues for a closer integration of philosophy with public health science, an integration that is exemplified by the case of scientific reasoning during the BSE affair. It will therefore be of interest to advanced students, academics, researchers and professionals in the areas of public health science and epidemiology, as well as philosophical disciplines such as informal logic, argumentation and fallacy theory and epistemology.

A STUNNING, PROVOCATIVE PERSPECTIVE ON THE DISCIPLE PETER AS DEPICTED BY MATTHEW ''In this highly controversial work on Peter, Robert Gundry's intellectual gifts and remarkable powers of analysis are displayed to an even higher degree than in his previous publications. . . One need not agree with Gundry's conclusions to acknowledge that the penetrating exegesis presented here and the nature of the argumentation as a whole demand serious reflection and engagement. Those who pay close attention to this brief but unusually weighty book will not be able to read Matthew in quite the same way that they did before.'' --MOISES SILVA author of Biblical Words and Their Meaning ''Peter, long thought to be 'prince of the apostles' and one of the heroes of the Gospel of Matthew, is shown here to be neither. This extraordinarily closely argued volume by Robert Gundry offers a compelling case that Matthew constructs the figure of Peter as a failed disciple and an apostate. . . A courageous book that will require scholars to reassess how the Peter of Matthew came to be, in Gundry's words, 'airbrushed' and turned into a model of disciple and central figure in ecclesiastical memory.'' --JOHN S. KLOPPENBORG University of Toronto ''If Bob Gundry is known for anything, it is for his dogged pursuit of the meaning of Scripture. Here he once again provides fresh, penetrating analysis--in the present case, leading to an unsettling conclusion. Provocative, as he can often be, Gundry is never boring but always instructive and well worth a careful reading.'' --DONALD A. HAGNER Fuller Theological Seminary ROBERT H. GUNDRY is scholar-in-residence and professor emeritus of New Testament and Greek at Westmont College, Santa Barbara, California. His other books include A Survey of the New Testament (now in its fifth edition), Mark: A Commentary on His Apology for the Cross, and Matthew: A Commentary on His Handbook for a Mixed Church under Persecution.

Infinite Regress
46,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Regression addresses what has come before; it is a matter of looking backward of retrospections? The motionless things of nature are generally forward-looking their problem is that of the question: Where do we go from here? It is primarily with intelligent beings that we ask: How did we get to where we now find ourselves? Regression and infinite regression in particular is thus a concept that has gained a greater prominence in the human sciences than in the sciences of nature. Argumentation to infinite regress has long been a favored instrument of philosophical dialectic. Philosophers have used it to disprove the positions they model to criticize. Infinite regresses, so they reason, are unrealizable: they cannot be completed so as to achieve some definitive result. And thereby anything that would engender an infinite regress is automatically made ineffective. Infinite Regress examines the theory of regression and includes information on the topics of vicious regress, innocuous regress, circularity regress, and propositional regress. Also discussed is the history of regression stemming from ancient times, to medieval times, to early modern history. Some of the other chapters in this book focus on world class philosophers including Immanuel Kant, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, and Bertrand Russell. The book will play a significant role in theoretical philosophy as well as in social philosophy and the philosophy of mind.
