The Cosmological Argument from Plato to Leibniz


Wipf & Stock 2001

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Even as interest in the cosmological argument for God’s existence has grown amongst philosophers of religion, few contemporary treatments deal with it fairly and consistently. In this survey of the history of the cosmological proof, William Lane Craig summarizes the thought of the 13 most prominent proponents of the argument. His even-handed analysis is the most comprehensive to date, and alleviates the errors found in other treatments.
