Edited by Daniel von Wachter (International Academy of Philosophy In The Principality of Liechtenstein)
|Summary||We can distinguish two approaches to the concept of a miracle: First, one can try to define the concept according to the ordinary usage. Secondly, one can try to redefine the concept so that it is more in accordance with what oneself believes or in some other sense better. Texts that investigate the nature of miracles and how they fit into the causal structure of the world are not here but in ‘The possibility of miracles’.|
