- Event Details
Join us for dinner at 6pm, followed by lecture at 7pm!
Dr. Robert Koons will discuss recent philosophical work on proofs for God's existence. The last 20 years have seen a surge in this area, and Dr. Koons will describe four of these new proofs briefly: the argument for a supernatural cause of the universe based on the possibility of empirical knowledge, the “Grim Reaper” paradox as a proof of the beginning of time, the analysis of the fine-tuning of the universe for life and scientific discovery, and Plantinga’s evolutionary argument against naturalism.
Dr. Koons is a philosophy professor at UT, specializing in metaphysics, logic, and philosophy of religion. His works include Paradoxes of Belief and Strategic Rationality (Cambridge Univ., 1997), Realism Regained (Oxford Univ., 2000), Metaphysics: The Fundamentals (Wiley-Blackwell, 2016), and The Atlas of Reality (Wiley-Blackwell, 2018).
This event is free and open to all.
Friday, October 25 at 6:00pm to 8:30pm
