Product description

"Anthony Kenny is one of the leading philosophers of the post war years. As he recounts in the first chapter of this book, he abandoned the Roman Catholic priesthood to set out on an intellectual journey which led him to become a professional academic and philosopher of distinction.

In this brilliant new book, Kenny responds to the request to write personally and honestly about his own struggles with belief, with attempts to argue for the existence of God and how he has developed a position which is that of neither the theist nor the atheist.

Pascal's Wager is the subject of a key chapter in this book. Later on, Kenny also wrestles with the concept of happiness and why it means so much to him. Because Kenny is a man who prowls at the frontiers of theology and philosophy, he commands interest from a very wide spectrum of readers - those who believe, and those who find it hard to do so. In this respect his position is unique. Profoundly influenced by Wittgenstein, he has also written important books on St Thomas Aquinas and Descartes.

Anthony Kenny is a man whose intellectual honesty will touch the hearts and minds of countless people."

This book is as new, dust jacket included.
