Questioning the Absolute

The core of the papers gathered here were first presented at a conference on the philosophy of religion hosted by the International Institute for Hermeneutics at Mount Allison University (New Brunswick) in August 2006. Other papers were solicited by the editors to round out a historical retrieval of the proofs for Gods existence.
