Reviews - What do customers think about The Cosmological Argument from Plato to Leibniz?

Very Hard Book to Find, But Well Worth the Search  Dec 7, 2000
This is one of Craig's first books and, I believe, one of his more interesting books. Craig Begins with Plato and walks through the cosmology and metaphysics of Aristotle, the Arabic philosophers (i.e. Kalam), Jewish philosophers, Aquinas (i.e. five ways, etc.), John Duns Scotus, Spinoza, and Leibniz. He covers each of these thinkers views on cosmology, creation, metaphysics, and their various arguments in support of their philosophies. Craig's writing style is direct and easy to follow which makes for a good read. The contents of the book are not too complicated and thus Craig has (or had rather)the potential of a fairly wide audience. Some of the strengths of the book, I thought, were the chapters that dealt with the Arabic philosophers (this may be since I do not know a whole lot about this area of philosophy and this section was very helpful), and the chapter titled "Typology of Cosmological Arguments." In this latter chapter Craig goes through certain arguments that have arisen against philosophers such as Hume and Kant, and then he delineates the types of arguments that have been used throughout the history of philosophy (i.e. kalam, Leibnizian, etc.). He discusses errors that have arisen regarding certain cosmological arguments, explains how they occurred, etc. Of course, Craig is in favor of the kalam cosmological argument, and this can be seen sprinkled throughout the text (and the chapter on the Arabic philosophers is the longest in the whole book). Nonetheless, this is a nice assessment of several various arguments in the history of philosophy regarding the cosmological argument. If you can get this site to find this book you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this book. I wish someone would reprint it.
