Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with constructive and critical work in, on or against various brands of theism. This is to say that not only classical theism but also panentheism and versions of Thomism have been included. The same goes for its historical adversary (atheism) and for its more recent alternatives, in so far as they deal specifically deal with theism, such as Wittgensteinianism and 'postmodernism'. The large number of entries, nearly 3600, concerned with the various aspects of theism seems to confirm its status as the dominant tradition in the philosophy of religion. The chapter is divided in five sub-categories: general and/or historical, the concept of God, arguments for or against the existence of God, the problem of evil including the free will defence and versions of theodicy and atheism and agnosticism.

Keywords: panentheism; postmodernism; theism
