Re-Defending Arguments from Desire: A Second Response to Gregory Bassham

Peter S. Williams (September 2016)

In C.S. Lewis’s Christian Apologetics: Pro and Con (Leiden: Brill Rodopi, 2015), Gregory Bassham and I debated the argument from desire (AFD). As with all of the debates in this volume (which Dr Bassham also edited), the two round debate structure left Bassham with the final, contrary word. This paper continues where things were left, defending the arguments from desire against objections made by Bassham in his “Reply to Peter Williams”.
