"The third edition of An Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion provides a critical examination of some fundamental questions posed by religious belief: What does belief in God amount to? Can God's existence be proved? Is there life after death?" "Brian Davies considers these questions and many others, sometimes offering provocative answers of his own, but more often giving readers room to reach independent conclusions. He explains how a range of thinkers have approached the subject - including Anselm, Aquinas, Descartes, Leibniz, Hume, and Kant - and also discusses how contemporary authors now engage with the issues involved. Completely revised to cover the latest developments in the field, the new edition of this established textbook will prove the ideal introduction for all students of the philosophy of religion."--BOOK JACKET.
