Brian Davies on the Augustinian Theodicy

A Level: OCR

A detailed investigation into Brian Davies's development of the Augustinian theodicy, including how it works, and why it's convincing. This lesson provides a brief biography of Brian Davies, and covers the text of Philosophy of Religion. This includes discussion of evil as a privation of good, how evil is defeated by following Jesus, and how evil is caused by disobeying God, which he uses to support Augustine of Hippo's belief that God is omnibenevolent and omnipotent despite evil.
