Does God Exist? Logical Foundations of the Cosmological Argument

Insan Publ (2008)

Abstract
In this book, the logical framework of various versions of the cosmological argument for the existence of God along with their characteristic concomitant critiques is analysed. The cosmological argument for the existence of God through the existence of the universe has significant grounds in religion, philosophy, and science. The discussions touch upon the problems of necessity and contingency, infinity and finitude, subjectivity and objectivity, verification and falsification, time and space, epistemology, and the origin of the universe. The logical foundations of three main versions of the argument are demonstrated in the Thomistic, Leibnizian, and Kalam versions. (publisher)
