Prof Edward Feser – Classical Theism & the Nature of God
16th January 2019: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Oxford Chapter of the Thomistic Institute, in collaboration with The Aquinas Institute, welcome Prof. Edward Feser, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Pasadena City College, California.
The classical theism of Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas and other great theologians of the past ascribes certain distinctive attributes to God, such as simplicity, immutability, and eternity. These attributes have been controversial in more recent theology and philosophy of religion. Yet they follow unavoidably from the very arguments that lead us to knowledge of God’s existence. In this talk I show why this is so, and respond to criticisms of classical theism raised by thinkers like Alvin Plantinga.
