Richard Swinburne's Argument

A Level: AQA • Edexcel

An investigation into Richard Swinburne's argument from religious experience, including what it is, how it works, and why it's convincing. This lesson provides a brief biography of Richard Swinburne, and summarises the text of The Existence of God. This includes discussion of the principle of credulity and the principle of testimony, and how these principles support the argument for accepting the reality of religious experience.
