Is Paul Moser Among the Swinburnian Philosophical Theologians?

by Charles Taliaferro

While Paul Moser distances himself from philosophical projects such as Richard Swinburne’s natural theology, I suggest that he and Swinburne may be working in the same vineyard or, to no longer speak in parables, they both employ a similar epistemology.

While I believe that (what I see as both) Moser’s and Swinburne’s epistemology is sound and they are both right about the meaning of life from the standpoint of theism and naturalism, I urge both to spend a little more time on the role of love in contrasting theism and naturalism.

Finally, I urge Moser to be just a little less Manichean in his view of death.
