Demonstrates with succinctness, brilliance, and precision that modern Anglo-Saxon naturalists are not rationalists but . . . are, in fact, the enemies of reason, which can only have any reality if the physical world has a spiritual, rational source. -John Milbank, University of Nottingham
More than a few people seem to regard it as a mark of sophistication to hold that nothing exists that transcends the natural order. But, as Stewart Goetz and Charles Taliaferro show in their splendid new book, naturalism is anything but a sophisticated view of reality. Under rigorous philosophical scrutiny, it isnt even a plausible one. . . . Patiently, gently, but in the end decisively, Goetz and Taliaferro demolish the dogmas of naturalism. -Robert P. George, Princeton University
The clearest and most penetrating exposition and critique of naturalism anywhere. In accessible, nontechnical language and brevity of style, the authors have managed to identify important versions of naturalism and expose the Achilles heel of each. In a day when theologians and Christian leaders feel bullied by scientific naturalism, this book is a must-read. -J. P. Moreland; Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
Taliaferro and Goetz have written a brilliant book! These veteran philosophers represent naturalism fairly, both allowing its spokespersons to speak for themselves and accurately interpreting their views. Yet the authors criticisms of naturalism and their defense of theism are trenchant and insightful. Superbly done! -Paul Copan, Palm Beach Atlantic University
Charles Taliaferro is professor of philosophy at St. Olaf College, Northfield, Minnesota. He is the author or editor of eight books, including Evidence and Faith: Philosophy and Religion since the Seventeenth Century.
