Nothing within the world has the power to make the world continue; yet it is intrinsic to the temporal world that it does continue, and does not exist merely instantaneously. On this basis, the author renews St. Thomas's way of conceiving God as the immediate principle of existence, but doesthis de novo, never drawing upon any authority, but working within the exigencies of contemporary general philosophy. The philosophy of religion is for him never a separate discipline but the fruit of a proper working through of the inter-related problems of the philosophy of mind and action,epistemology, and logical theory with the correlative restructuring of metaphysics.

Editorial Reviews

`This book is without doubt a serious contender for the title of the most important contemporary work of metaphysics: and if metaphysics is the first philosophy, for the title of the most important contemporary work of philosophy, tout court ... A review such as this cannot do justice to sucha work. May it at least communicate to some the enthusiasm which Braine's book has inspired. It is an essential work for anyone interested in either metaphysics or in natural theology, and contains valuable material for those involved in locig and the philosophy of science.'New Blackfriars
