"The book is a testament to the authors' enthusiasm both for Philosophy in general and for the Philosophy of Religion in particular. The task of introducing philosophical methods and concepts with clarity and coherence is not easy, and the authors embrace it enthusiastically. Their delight in their subject is manifest... and the fruits of their experience are apparent in the text." Paul Fitzpatrick, Open House, August/September 2009.

In response to all points, my account of the views of authors is based entirely on their own statements. It has been my experience that authors' own statements are pretty good prima facie evidence of what they believe.
I think part of Murasaki's problem is to assume that if someone is not easily placed in this category, then he must be in some opposite one, which is a bit like saying that if someone is not a Rangers supporter then he must support Celtic - there are other options.
1. On the Falsification debate, Murasaki is guilty of selective quotation. I invite a second look at the grammar of the Falsification debate. Nowhere does Flew assert that believers do not permit their beliefs to be falsified: he says that it often seems to people who are not religious as if there were no occurrence that would count as a disproof of the existence of God. Note the 'often' is not 'always'. But the important grammatical point is that Flew goes on to ask a question: "I therefore put to the succeeding symposiasts the simple central questions,'What would have to occur or to have occurred to constitute for you a disproof of the love of, or of the existence of, God?'". The point is that this is a question rather than any statement of a view.Read more ›
It provides a clear, insightful yet concise exploration of all the key topics specified in the OCR syallabus to help embellish notes copied from a standard - and most probably, a far chunkier text book! It contains all the 'juicy' details not always present within such text books, which the examiner wants to see but should definitely be used in combination with another text book for best results. This is not because it lacks any major content - simply because, for the sake of concision - the authors can't include all information available on the subject.
If you're still not convinced then let me tell you that it was largely because of this book that I managed to achieve an A in the subject (which I was very content with!)
takes a lot for granted: no illustrations, no glossary, no insulting 'thought points', but some very useful exam/essay advice;
OCR slant, but, as it would need supplementing with more accessible material, could be used for other boards;
in any case am going to try at least the A2 half with an average class next term: can't resist it...

There is no such thing as the perfect book, but this is a good textbook that is pitched at the able student but will not bemuse the less able. Read morePublished on 1 Feb. 2014 by Mr. I. N. Stannard
