Metaphysical Arguments for the Existence of God

The old natural theology was based on the concepts which we have already found at the heart of theism, viz. being, activity, infinity, absoluteness. With these it tried to construct a line of argument which, starting with propositions about finite things, should end by showing their derivative character and their dependence on an infinite and absolute being which was God. In this and the following chapter we shall see how the argument grew and ramified, and in Chapter 8 we shall examine its cogency.
