    One thought on “Metaphysics”

    1. The Contours of Christian Philosophy series is hit ot miss Wood s contribution on epistemology was a good entry Hasker s, on the other hand, while not being horrible, can simply be skipped The reasons for this are that, first, the book was written in 1983 While not wanting to condemn something just because it is old, thus engaging in chronological snobbery, it is just a fact that the field Hasker is writing in has progressed quite a bit since 1983 Still, this wouldn t be so bad if it were not fo [...]

    2. 1.4When I was first reading this, I could tell that this was leaning towards Free Will and felt slightly preachy, but then I listened to another professor from LUO who was a lot worse and then I was like This is the best ever I feel like this book looks at the world through philosophy, then the Bible instead of looking at the world through the Bible, then philosophy.Recommended 12 Used with Week 3 of LUO Philosophy and Contemporary Ideas.

    3. Thought the book, even for a brief introduction, was rather poor in quality The explanations of the topics chosen to be discussed seemed to oversimplify arguments and theories and then subsequently provide flimsy defenses of those against which the author was clearly not inclined to Learned a few helpful distinctions, making the book not entirely without merit.

    4. Interesting book, though I find philosophy fascinating so I am biased If you don t find philosophy interesting, you probably won t like it.

This review will only cover certain sections of Hasker s work.He defines freedom as Freedom of choice or freedom of the will 30 He defines determinism as For every event which happens, there are previous events and circumstances which are its sufficient conditions or causes, so that, given those conditions it is impossible that the event not occur 32 Libertarianism some human actions are chosen and performed by the agent without their being any sufficient condition or cause of the action prior t [...]

    6. Hasker is able to explain Metaphysics in way that is clear and understandable to the philosophy novice It can be read in one sitting It s a very basic introduction, so if you re looking for something a little meatier, this isn t it.

    7. For an assigned text, this was alright Hasker acknowledges that a 130 page book on metaphysics can t help but be superficial, but as a basic introduction it does the job.

    8. Only upon pain of death will I ever discuss Metaphysics again Probably a good author though, I passed this section P
