Over the course of the oncoming weeks I am going to
undertake a critique of some of the arguments presented by Edward Feser in his
new book, Five Proofs of the Existence of God. Although the tone of these
articles will be primarily critical the intent will be to further the project
of Natural Theology by flagging up areas where further work is required. I also
hope, in later entries, to give some indication of how a non-theist who is not
beholden to contemporary ‘scientistic’ naturalism might reply.
First under discussion will be Feser's account of the PSR
Cosmological Argument, or, as he terms it, the Rationalist Proof.
