Philosophy for Theology: "Is There Contingency In God?"

Added 22 February 2017 by Franciscan University of Steubenville

Dr. Mark Roberts, Professor of Philosophy at Franciscan University of Steubenville, argues that contingency and necessity are modes that can be applied to propositions and presents several arguments to show how contingency can be stated of God.

Dr. Michael Sirilla, Professor of Theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, responds by elaborating on Dr. Robert’s argument with a quick survey of Catholic thought and highlighting a dilemma he sees in Dr. Robert’s argument based on St. Thomas’ definition of contingency.
