    W.L. Craig does great work on some topics, but he’s below par on this one. For a far better treatment of the general subject, check out the five John Locke Lectures from 2009.

    Thanks, Janice. I’m downloading them. It will take me some time to listen through them—maybe a week or so.

  3. Tom Gilson says:

    Well, it’s going to be more than a week, for the mundane reason that I couldn’t find my iPod for a few days and couldn’t listen to them in the car!

    Well, I’m really pleased by the effort.

    Let me say this about these lectures. They’re tough because (a) they’re addressed to professional philosophers, (b) they’re given by a person who, characteristically, makes no effort to sell himself or his arguments, and (c ) they don’t directly engage any theistic positions. On the other hand, as far as this topic and the profession is concerned, these lectures are state-of-the-art. Also, although they’re not explicitly addressed to any theistic views, these lectures do a considerable job of dissolving the sorts of puzzles which motivate basically all of the theistic arguments from morality.
