OK, so now that I’ve done the PhD thing (well, I’ll have it when I graduate in May), and I’m always in the process of writing articles and sending them off for publication, and I’m still applying for a full time academic post, what am I missing? Of course – write a book!
So yesterday I started putting together a rough outline for a proposed book. It’s going to be a work on the moral argument for theism, its history and various versions, and then a defense of its premises, including defenses of its premises that have come, not from religious believers, but from skeptics. I’ve done a bit of looking around, and generally the argument is subsumed into broader works on philosophy of religion or apologetics. If there are full length treatments like this, they aren’t terribly prominent – unless I just haven’t come across them yet.
I’ll keep you posted on progress, when there is some.
