"The simpler a theory, the more probable it is."
Richard Swinburne is a world-leading philosopher and theologian based at the University of Oxford. Swinburne is best-known for his arguments in favour of the existence of God. He is the author of an acclaimed trilogy on the subject: The Coherence of Theism, The Existence of God, and Faith and Reason. Swinburne has been awarded honorary doctorates by the Catholic University of Lublin in 2015, and by Dimitrie Cantemir Christian University, Bucharest in 2016.
Swinburne is also well-known for his defense of 'substance dualism' - the view that we fundamentally consist of two kinds of substances: soul and body. His latest book, Are We Bodies or Souls?, offers a powerful rejection of materialism, the thesis that we are ultimately material beings. The book also brilliantly defends the idea that substance dualism is supported by modern neuroscience.
"Swinburne is in that class of thinkers from whom one always learns much, even when one ends up having to disagree." Edward Feser
