A Level: OCR • WJEC

GCSE: Edexcel A

A detailed investigation into Thomas Aquinas's famous presentation of the design argument (a.k.a. the teleological argument), including how it works, and why it's convincing. This lesson provides a brief biography of Thomas Aquinas, and covers the text of Summa Theologica. This includes discussion of his analogy of the archer, which support his argument that order and regularity in the universe strengthens the argument for the existence of God.
