    Sammanfattning : This inquiry seeks an answer to the question whether classical theistic doctrines about the nature of God are amenable to formal analysis in terms of standard first-order logic. It is argued that due to the conceptual impact of classical theism’s doctrine of divine simplicity there is a good reason for answering this question in the negative. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Non-Gods and Gods: A Cosmontological Treatise

    Författare :Martin Lembke; Administration; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Existence of God; Cosmological Argument; Ontological Argument; Anselm; Divine Attributes; Whatever it is better to be than not to be ; Omniscience; Omnipotence; Impeccability;

    Sammanfattning : Incorporating the conceptual resources of the ontological argument for the existence of God into the underlying rationale of the cosmological ditto, I here present and defend a ‘cosmontological’ synthesis: an a posteriori argument for the existence of an all-perfect GOD: a being who, in virtue of being whatever it is better to be than not to be, is that than which a greater cannot be thought. Central to this synthesis is a very plausible principle called Exclusion: For any class (or property extension) C, if C is non-empty then there is an explanation for the non-emptiness of C if and only if there is at least one non-member of C which causes C to be non-empty.

    Sammanfattning : This book offers a theological study of an expression unique in biblical literature concerning the purpose of life: “that you might become sharers in divine nature” (2 Peter 1:4). Following an analysis of the text-immanent features in 2 Peter 1:1—11, the study delineates comparable notions of “sharers in divine nature” in selected writings that were current in the first century and contrasts these with 2 Peter.
