Theism and the Problem of Evil: A Critical Study

The Concept of Theism

The Meaning of Theism

The Word “theos” “ qeos” in Greek means “ God”. Theism means belief in God, where God is understood to be the single omnipotent creator of everything else that exist. God is regarded as a being distinct from his creation though manifesting himself through it and also essentially personal, earring for and communicating with mankind and infinitely worthy of human worships and obedience. Theism is a central element in the whole judaeo Christian religious tradition. A theistic argument is one that is meant to establish the existence of God and “prove” it to non- believers or reaffirm it for the benefit of believers. [Read more…]

Reconciling Hegel’s politics and our Nigeria system of Government.

Reconciling Hegel’s politics and our Nigeria system of Government.

ABSTRACT

The most obvious pattern of Nigeria system of government revolves around Hegel’s theory of State as the ultimate objectification or self-projection of the Absolute Spirit in which the drivers of government policies are superior to the people. This work investigated and outlined the consequences and the remedy to this Hegel’s foundation of Nigeria government and emphasized the necessity for sustainable development to become the goal of those in the position of power in Nigeria. The remedy is located in the reconstruction of the concept of State in Nigeria with the purpose of producing a State that integrates the people into its policies and pursues development ideology that is people-oriented.

Kwame Nkrumah’s Theory of African Liberation and Consciencism

Kwame Nkrumah’s Theory of African Liberation and Consciencism

  •  Background To Study

Before slavery was practiced in the new world, there was no special denigration of Africans. Travelers to the continent described the inhabitants with the natural curiosity and examination to be expected of individuals coming from other environments.

It was when the slave trade and slavery began to develop the ghastly proportions that made them the base of that capital accumulation which assisted the rise of western industrialism that a new attitude towards Africans emerged.

During this period, Europe was then passing its Renaissance, and the European government, picking great interest in the mercantile Programmes –“a doctrine which regarded money as the main object of a community,” because they needed money and men for the maintenance of the army, and for the unification of their national states.

Aquinas notion of love

Aquinas notion of love

Introduction

 Love In General:Often times in our life, we do hear different categories of people talking about “Love”.  What is “love’, that every person talks about it?  Go to the streets, to different higher institutions of learning we have around today, the word ‘love’ becomes the order of the day, that one often times hears them say certain things like; “I love that boy or girl”. Even among the preachers, politicians and children the word “Love” is always heard.

One certain day, I heard one little boy telling the other a story about his girl friend.  At the end of the story he says; “I love this girl so much that I cannot stay even for a minute without her”.  I asked myself how powerful is “love” that every created being tends towards it. No wonder a musician by name Celine Dion in one of her albums explicitly mentioned the power of love. She says that love does not ask why, it speaks from the heart and never explains. [Read more…]

Notion Addiction and Freedom in Gerald G. May

Notion Addiction and Freedom in Gerald G. May

Literature Review

Addiction and Freedom: Having introduced the topic of our discussion in this long – essay and outlined the modus operandi the researcher wishes to apply, it is now time for us to try to present how other philosophies through the ages viewed freedom as a philosophical topic.

2.1   Ancient Period:

In the opinion of philosophers like Mondin, “the problem of freedom did not receive a meaningful attention in this era”, because they were concerned with finding the foundations of the cosmos. J.B. Akam also thinks along this line when he wrote, that ‘‘among the ancient philosophers, from the pre- Socratics to Plotinus, none gave freedom the attention it deserved’’. He maintained all the same that Aristotle had a coined word which has a close meaning to the notion of some mental state that must precede action. [Read more…]

THE IDEA OF GOD (PETER KREEFT)

The idea of God is either a fact, like sane or a fantasy, like Santa1.

If it is a fantasy, a human invention, it is the greatest invention in all of human History measure it against all other invention, mental or physical, put on one side of the scale the control of five, the domestication of animals and the cultivation of wheat; the wheel, the ship and the rocket ship baseball, the symphony orchestra and anesthetics – and a million other similarly great and wonderful things. Then put on the other side of the scale a single idea, the idea of a being that is actual absolute, perfect, eternal, one, and personal all knowing, all-loving, all-just, all–merciful, and all- powerful, undying, impervious, unbribeable, uncompromising and unchangeable, a cosmic creator designer, redeemer and provider, cosmic artist musician scientist and sage, the infinite abyss of pure being who is yet a person, a self, an “I”. It is disputable whether such a being is a fact or a fantasy, but it is indisputable that if it is a fantasy, it is by for the greatest fantasy in history. If it is humanity’s invention, it is humanity masterpiece. [Read more…]

Critical Appraisal of Hobbes’ Idea of Social Contract

Critical Appraisal of Hobbes’ Idea of Social Contract

General Idea of a Social Contract

The social contract theory, nearly as old as philosophy itself, is the view that person’s moral or political obligations are dependent upon a contract or agreement between them to form a society. On the mention of the term contract, then, what comes to mind immediately is agreement. The New Webster Dictionary of the English Language defined the term ‘contract’ as “an agreement or a covenant”. On the other hand, Oxford Dictionary of Philosophy defines social contract as a basis for legitimate legal and political power in the idea of a contract. Contracts are things that create obligation.” Hence, if we can view society as organized, i.e., a situation where a contract had been formed between the citizen and the sovereign power, this would necessarily ground the obligation of each to the other.

Meaning of Human Existence in Soren Kierkegaard

Meaning of Human Existence in Soren Kierkegaard

Introduction

Human Existence: The development of metaphysical idealism by such philosophers as Fichte, Schelling and Hegel was taken to be a great fault by Jakob Friedrich Fries (1773-1843). He was of the opinion that philosophical trend ought to have continued in the Kantian tradition. His simple reason for this remains that “we must investigate the nature and laws and scope of knowledge before we can tackle problems about the object of knowledge”[1]. In this point, Fries shares affinity with the attitude of John Locke, the father of British empiricism. [Read more…]
