Cosmological argument

 Cosmological argument

 

Paper details:

Prepare an AS/CR on Aquinas’ Cosmological Argument. In order to do well on this week’s assignment, it is important to make sure you not only understand and can briefly summarize Aquinas’ argument but also, in the Kellenberger reading you will want to make sure you pay particular attention to the section titled “Criticisms of the Cosmological Argument” (“Going back to infinity”, “The formulation of Aquinas’ conclusions to his arguments”, and “Challenge to the underlying idea of the Cosmological Argument”). These readings together should provide you with a good sense of the major pros and cons of the debate. That way, when you come to the CR portion of the assignment you should be able to decide whether you agree or disagree with Aquinas, and, you should be in a position to provide good reasons for the position you are defending. Don’t forget the word count at the end of the assignment. Don’t forget to use the expected formatting of AS/CR & SR as described in the Writing Guidelines.
