God of Metaphysics by T. L. S. Sprigge

Book Description

Can philosophy offer reasonable grounds for the existence of a God as the centre of actual faith, rather than just a theoretical Absolute? Many contemporary thinkers have concluded that no genuine religion could be based upon metaphysics. In this book, however, T. L. S. Sprigge examines sympathetically the most notable metaphysical systems of the last four centuries which purport to put religion on a rational footing and, after a thorough examination of their claims, considers what kind of religious outlook they might support and (more briefly) how they actually affected the lives of their proponents. The thinkers studied include Spinoza, Hegel, T. H. Green, Bernard Bosanquet (together with a brief discussion of Bradley), Josiah Royce, A. N. Whitehead, and Charles Hartshorne, concluding with an exposition of the author's own viewpoint (pantheistic absolute idealism) and a general discussion on the relation between metaphysics and religion. There is also a chapter on Kierkegaard as the most important critic of metaphysical religion.

Importance of Subjectivity by T. L. S. Sprigge Importance of Subjectivity, Hardback (January 2011)

Timothy Sprigge was one of the leading exponents of philosophical idealism in the last fifty years. The idealist worldview, long unfashionable, has been coming back into favour, and Sprigge's work has found a new readership. These selected essays focus on the view of consciousness on which his unique system of metaphysics and ethics is based.

God of Metaphysics by T. L. S. Sprigge God of Metaphysics, Hardback (April 2006)

Can philosophy offer reasonable grounds for the existence of a God (or Absolute) possessing genuine (even if not orthodox) religious significance and not proposed simply as the solution to a purely intellectual philosophical problem? This book examines notable metaphysical systems of the last four centuries.

Santayana by T. L. S. Sprigge Santayana, Paperback (March 1995)

This study of Santayana was the first in Routledge's "Arguments of the Philosophers" series. Growing interest in the work of this Spanish-born American philosopher has prompted this new edition, complete with a new preface by the author, reassessing his own ideas about Santayana.
