Abstract

In this chapter I will present some advantages of Logical Pantheism when it comes to solving some problems that typically haunt classical Theism. The most important of these is the problem of evil, in its various versions. I will point out that Logical Pantheism is able to deal with both the non-modal and the modal problem of evil. I will focus less on the countless ways in which theist philosophers have tackled this problem, which would need an entire book for a thorough discussion, and more on the response that is available to the logical pantheist, which, I argue, has the same explanatory power as the theist response, but is more economical. Then I will point out the advantages that Logical Pantheism has over standard Pantheism, especially when it comes to a credible account of divinity. This will be followed by a discussion of Panentheism, in which I will stress that Logical Pantheism offers a clear, non-mysterious content for this doctrine. Finally, I will speculate about how to understand the need for religious pluralism and tolerance, and how to interpret, ontologically, religious conflict and violence. It is here that I will make use of my ideas related to transistence, expounded in Chapter 4.
