Item description for The Problem of God in Modern Thought by Philip Clayton...

The 1988 Templeton Prize winner scrutinizes the idea of God in Descartes, Leibnitz, Spinoza, Kant, Fichte, and Schelling, seeing an intense struggle over the attributes of infinity and perfection. He also makes a strong case for "panentheism"---the belief in a transcendent deity who is not separate from the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Problem of God in Modern Thought?

Good book!  Apr 22, 2001
This is an astonishing book. Clayton manages to give a concise overview of what the Enlightenment philosophers did with the image of God they inherited from the Middle Ages. Also, Clayton links this overview to how metaphysics and theology relate to science. Although one of my criticisms is that he discusses mainly German philosophers like Kant, Leibniz and Schelling (and briefly Descartes and Spinoza as well), it is well worth a read. Clayton states that this book is the first of a two-part work. I do wonder when there will be a sequel to this book.
