Refutation of their statement: "the essence of the First is not divisible into genus and species". But that worry is an endemic problem for any presentation of Academic scepticism, and Wynne can hardly be held responsible for problems in the theory he so convincingly recovers. An agnostic is someone who believes that it is impossible to prove God's existence. Even readers with little patience for rational reconstructions of now defunct theories will find Wynne's sophisticated analysis rewarding. See his work, The Construction of Social Reality.

The madman jumped into their midst and pierced them with his glances. He sees — Hannam is not alone in this — the history of medieval thought as a long and sometimes prickly conversation about Aristotle. The second half of the twentieth-century has been an especially fruitful period, with philosophers using new developments in logic and epistemology to mount both sophisticated The God of the Philosophers book of, and attacks on, religious claims. A proponent of such a theory, at least if he is an atheist, must believe that the matter of the universe came from nothing and by nothing. Of these, the first five refute those who fancy that the polytheistic worship is necessary in order to secure worldly prosperity, and that all these overwhelming calamities have befallen us in consequence of its prohibition. My modest New Year's wish forthen, is that atheists who care about honest argument — and about maybe actually getting somewhere in these otherwise mind-numbingly circular debates — might consider reading just one book by a theologian, David Bentley Hart's The Experience of Godpublished recently by Yale University Press.

In a post at The Week, Damon Linker sums up this second version better than I can: … according to the classical metaphysical traditions of both the East and West, God is the unconditioned cause of reality — of absolutely everything that is — from the beginning to the end of time. The philosopher's doctrine of denying the existence of God's attributes. Fully at home with the latest scienctific advances, Leibniz ultimately rejected the new atomistic philosophies of Descartes, Gassendi, and Hobbes, and drew upon the old cosmology of Aristotelian scholasticism. Did he lose his way like a child?
