Arguing about Gods
Graham Oppy’s Arguing about Gods is a wide-ranging and penetrating critique of the arguments of natural theology. Essential to Oppy’s project of showing that there are no successful theistic arguments is his account of success in argumentation. Oppy’s account not only sets the bar unrealistically high but also appears to be self-defeating, since Oppy fails to provide a successful argument for the truth of his account. Nonetheless, natural theologians cannot afford to ignore Oppy’s criticisms of their theistic arguments.
