Hobart demonstrates how Malebranche's theories of truth, ideas, and intelligible extension were formulated under the influence of mathematics and how these theories conflicted with the assumptions and patterns of thought needed for traditional substance philosophy and natural theology. The conflict produced inconsistencies in key concepts--necessity, infinity, being, faith, and reason--rendering any reconciliation between science and religion intellectually unattainable.Originally published in 1982.A UNC Press Enduring Edition -- UNC Press Enduring Editions use the latest in digital technology to make available again books from our distinguished backlist that were previously out of print.
