Being, Freedom, and Method

Peter van Inwagen

Oxford University Press

In this final chapter, Peter van Inwagen responds to the essays of Louise Antony, David Chalmers, John Keller, Thomas Kelly and Sarah McGrath, Michael Loux, Laurie Paul, and Alex Rosenberg. These responses clarify (and in some cases modify) van Inwagen’s views, and give a nice indication of where the next rounds of debate will be conducted on the problem of evil, metaphilosophy, constituent ontology, and the compatibility of theism and evolution. Van Inwagen’s responses also provide helpful methodological insight into his approach to philosophy in general, and to ontology, the philosophy of religion, and philosophical success and failure in particular.

Keywords:   problem of evil, metaphilosophy, constituent ontology, theism and evolution, method
