Naturalistic Impositions

In Ulrich J. Frey (ed.), The Nature of God ––– Evolution and Religion. Tectum. 129-157 (2010)
Abstract
This article investigates the question of why there is emotional resistance to research results such as the theory of evolution and to philosophical naturalism. A depiction of how this emotional resistance expresses itself is followed by a brief account of the core theses of philosophical naturalism. The emotional reactions to research results then are differentiated from reactions to philosophical naturalism and a first overview of the irritant positions of naturalism is given. Finally two misunderstandings about the aims of philosophical naturalism are addressed.
