God Over All

Divine Aseity and the Challenge of Platonism

William Lane Craig

  • Offers a unique and helpful taxonomy of the wide range of options available to the classical theist for dealing with the challenge of platonism.
  • Probes the diverse views on the reality of abstract objects and their compatibility with classical theism.
  • Provides a thorough discussion, rooted in careful exegesis, of the biblical and patristic basis of the doctrine of divine aseity in the literature.
  • Challenges the influential Quinean metaontological theses concerning the way in which we make ontological commitments.
  • A wide-ranging work in analytic philosophy of religion, drawing upon philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of language, metaphysics, and metaontology.
