Rethinking the Ontological Argument by Daniel A. Dombrowski
Book DescriptionIn recent years, the ontological argument and theistic metaphysics have been criticised by philosophers working in both the analytic and continental traditions. Responses to these criticisms have primarily come from philosophers who make use of the traditional, and problematic, concept of God. In this volume, Daniel A. Dombrowski defends the ontological argument against its contemporary critics, but he does so by using a neoclassical or process concept of God, thereby strengthening the case for a contemporary theistic metaphysics. Relying on the thought of Charles Hartshorne, he builds on Hartshorne's crucial distinction between divine existence and divine actuality, which enables neoclassical defenders of the ontological argument to avoid the familiar criticism that the argument moves illegitimately from an abstract concept to concrete reality. His argument, thus, avoids the problems inherent in the traditional concept of God as static.

Contemporary Athletics and Ancient Greek Ideals, Hardback (May 2009)
Contends that the ideas of Plato, Aristotle, and Plotinus shed important light on issues - such as the pursuit of excellence, the concept of play, and the power of accepting physical limitations while also improving one's body - that remain just as relevant in our sports-obsessed age as they were in ancient Greece.
Brief, Liberal, Catholic Defense of Abortion, Paperback (December 2006)» View all books by Daniel A. Dombrowski
The Catholic church has always opposed abortion, but - contrary to popular belief - not always for the same reasons. This study argues that the Catholic anti-abortion stance is justified neither by modern embryology nor by ancient church teachings. It embraces and evaluates the complexities of historical Catholic positions on abortion.
