Nothing within the world has the power to make the world continue; yet it is intrinsic to the temporal world that it does continue, and does not exist merely instantaneously. On this basis, the author renews St. Thomas's way of conceiving God as the immediate principle of existence, but does this de novo, never drawing upon any authority, but working within the exigencies of contemporary general philosophy. The philosophy of religion is for him never a separate discipline but the fruit of a proper working through of the inter-related problems of the philosophy of mind and action, epistemology, and logical theory with the correlative restructuring of metaphysics.

Industry Reviews

'a long sophisticated presentation of a Thomist cosmological argument, an interesting attempt and one well grounded in sensitivity to the history of philosophy ... powerful book' Richard Swinburne, Journal of Theological Studies 'This is an important book. The author, who teaches philosophy at the University of Aberdeen, attempts in as rigorous and as unprejudiced a way as possible to prove the existence of God, and he thinks he has succeeded in doing so.' Alfred Wilder, O.P. Recensiones 'this work should stand as a significant contribution to current philosophical debate over the existence of God' Revd John Yates, Christian Book Newsletter `This book is without doubt a serious contender for the title of the most important contemporary work of metaphysics: and if metaphysics is the first philosophy, for the title of the most important contemporary work of philosophy, tout court ... A review such as this cannot do justice to such a work. May it at least communicate to some the enthusiasm which Braine's book has inspired. It is an essential work for anyone interested in either metaphysics or in natural theology, and contains valuable material for those involved in locig and the philosophy of science.' New Blackfriars
