Product description


The Nicene Creed begins with the claim that God is 'the maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.' Does this claim necessitate the claim that God is also the creator of abstract objects propositions, sets, concepts, etc. if such there be? In this volume, Paul Gould brings together a first rate collection of scholars articulating and defending a wide range of positions regarding the relationship between abstracta and God. The introduction and the responses to each chapter by the other contributors make this a very approachable and teachable volume. --Kevin Timpe, Professor of Philosophy, Northwest Nazarene University, USA

Beyond the Control of God? is a much-needed and for many like me long-awaited book! Here we have a lively metaphysical engagement by leading philosophers on the fascinating, long-standing, and vitally important conversation about God, Platonism, nominalism, universals/abstract objects, particulars/concrete objects, and (non)instantiation. A superb resource and guide! --Paul Copan, Professor and Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics, Palm Beach Atlantic University, West Palm Beach, Florida
