A comprehensive survey of the many different forms of design argument for the existence of God.This book surveys 2,000 years of debate, and mines both historical and modern literature, to offer a critical assessment of the many forms of design argument for the existence of God. For upper-level undergraduates and graduates in philosophy of religion, theology, and philosophy of science.This book surveys 2,000 years of debate, and mines both historical and modern literature, to offer a critical assessment of the many forms of design argument for the existence of God. For upper-level undergraduates and graduates in philosophy of religion, theology, and philosophy of science.The history of design arguments stretches back to before Aquinas, who claimed that things which lack intelligence nevertheless act for an end to achieve the best result. Although science has advanced to discredit this claim, it remains true that many biological systems display remarkable adaptations of means to ends. Versions of design arguments have persisted over the centuries and have culminated in theories that propose an intelligent designer of the universe. This volume is the only comprehensive survey of 2,000 years of debate, drawing on both historical and modern literature to identify, clarify, and assess critically the many forms of design argument for the existence of God. It provides a neutral, informative account of the topic from antiquity to Darwin, and includes concise primers on probability and cosmology. It will be of great value to upper-level undergraduates and graduates in philosophy of religion, theology, and philosophy of science.Preface; 1. Introduction; 2. Preliminaries; 3.
