As a prelude to the 2013 Australasian Philosophy of Religion Association
Conference 'Religion and Science, Theism and Atheism' APRA will be
hosting a Symposium with Professor Herman Philipse (University of
Utrecht, NL) focused on his recent book "God in the Age of Science: A
Critique of Religious Reason" Oxford University Press, 2012.
Philipse's book, aimed at a scholarly philosophical audience, offers one
of the most significant critiques of metaphysical theology to be
published in recent years and stands as a challenging criticism to some
of the most influential contemporary theistic philosophy (paying
particular attention to the work of Alvin Plantinga and Richard Swinburne).
Herman Philipse (University of Utrecht)
John Bishop (University of Auckland)
Graham Oppy (Monash University)
Philip Quadrio (University of NSW and APRA President)
The three major sections of Philipse's book will be addressed and
critically engaged by Bishop, Oppy and Quadrio with a response from
Professor Philipse to each presentation.
