    About "Antony Flew"

    1. Antony Flew

      Antony Garrard Newton Flew 11 February 1923 8 April 2010 was a British philosopher Belonging to the analytic and evidentialist schools of thought, he was notable for his works on the philosophy of religion.Flew was a strong advocate of atheism, arguing that one should presuppose atheism until empirical evidence of a God surfaces He also criticised the idea of life after death, the free will defence to the problem of evil, and the meaningfulness of the concept of God In 2003 he was one of the signers of the Humanist Manifesto However, in 2004 he stated an allegiance to deism, specifically a belief in the Aristotelian God, stating that in keeping his lifelong commitment to go where the evidence leads, he now believes in the existence of God.He later wrote the book There is a God How the World s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind, with contributions from Roy Abraham Varghese This book and Flew s conversion itself has been the subject of controversy, following an article in the New York Times magazine alleging that Flew had mentally declined, and that Varghese was the primary author The matter remains contentious, with some commentators including PZ Myers and Richard Carrier supporting the allegations, and others, including Flew himself, opposing them.

    1. This is Flew in his right mind (1966): a philosopher touring the major sites of religious thinking (Order and Design, Existence and Causality, Meaning and Morality, Religious Experience, Miracle and History, Authority and Faith), and finding out what went right and (more often) what it went wrong. Flew is right that philosophy of religion provides an ideal introduction to philosophy in general. He's right, too, that to accept - as I'm afraid most Americans today to - Karl Barth's notion that "be [...]


    2. A rather good, but dated, introduction to the philosophy of religion (mainly theism). Flew's writing style is a bit different, and sometimes difficult. Otherwise, he seems to give a fairly good treatment of theistic arguments (a lot of Aquinas), and provides some standard - and novel- objections. The scope is the book is rather limited, though. So this will not provide a complete overview to contemporary (or even 20th century) philosophy of religion; however, it is a good start.
