Summary

In a lucid and comprehensive study, Professor Viney presents an excellent critical analysis of Hartshorne's thought about God. Demonstrating his thesis from many points of view (ontological, cosmological, teleological, moral, aesthetic, etc.), Viney deftly illustrates Hartshorne's belief that any one argument for God is inconclusive, but that many woven together make up a convincing interpretative expression of the world.

I am enthusiastic about this book. Viney shows an unusual grasp of Hartshorne's own writings and of the related literature. In fact, there are few whose knowledge of this material matches Viney's. Further, he wrestles with problem after problem in the proofs, often arguing his case with impressive effectiveness. The book is enhanced by his style which is interesting, clear, and unpretentious, and by his simple, straightforward organization.

“In philosophy, arguments for God have acquired a new prominence in our times. No one I know has undertaken the task Viney has carried out in this book. His effort to treat the global argument of Hartshorne is unique. And it will be welcome.” — Eugene H. Peters

“Viney's account is remarkably accurate, faithful to my meanings. (This does not mean that he agrees with me entirely, or I with him.)” — Charles Hartshorne

Donald Wayne Viney teaches philosophy at the University of Oklahoma.
