Item description for Samuel Clarke: A Demonstration of the Being and Attributes of God: And Other Writings (Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy) by Samuel Clarke, Ezio Vailati & Desmond M. Clarke...
Overview Clarke's A DEMONSTRATION OF THE BEING AND ATTRIBUTES OF GOD was published in 1705 and is one of the most famous attempts at proving the existence of God. This volume presents that work together with some supplementary texts--and with a historical introduction that examines Clarke's views and relates them to the Newtonian circle of which he was the most gifted and influential representative.
Publishers Description Samuel Clarke was one of the most gifted and influential Newtonian philosophers of his generation, and this work, which constituted the 1704 Boyle Lectures, was perhaps one of the most important works of the first half of the 18th century, generating controversy about the relation between space and God, the nature of divine necessary existence, the adequacy of the Cosmological Argument, agent causation, and the immateriality of the soul. Together with the other texts presented in this edition, it also provides an introduction to Clarke's philosophical views.
