Edward Feser's The Last Superstition: A Refutation of the New Atheism. This was recommended to me by SouthpawLink in another thread a week or so ago.
I have always been skeptical of the Church's claim that the existence of God can be known "by reason alone." Feser aims to demonstrate the truth of this claim, or at least to show that theism is more reasonable than atheism. For the moment, I remain skeptical, but I actually hope he's right. Let's see if he can convince me. I will report back when I finish the book.
Time for my book report. One relatively short book isn't enough to make the complete case, so I'm still a bit skeptical. However, he did convince me that Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens, et al are guilty of gross oversimplification, and that the case for theism is much stronger than they are willing to admit. I cannot judge "the case for theism" without going a lot deeper into it, so I intend to do that. Feser swears by St. Thomas Aquinas, who I've always avoided, but I guess I'll have to bite the bullet and dive into his two big works. And before doing that, I need to spend a little time with Plato (I think I hear Quis applauding), Aristotle, and St. Augustine. To make time for that, I plan on spending a lot less time on the forum, although I will pop in from time to time.
So for the next few months, "what I'm reading right now" will be a lot of Plato. Then on to the rest, in chronological order.
