Readership: Scholars and advanced students of philosophy.
Michael C. Rea, Associate Professor of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame
"... wide-ranging ... however we react to Rea's arguments, they do us the service of forcing us to reflect anew on the epistemology of metaphysics." - Australasian Journal of Philosophy
"The first part of Rea's book is an informed and useful history of naturalism as a philosophical movement ... full of interesting points." - Times Literary Supplement
"... succinct and penetrating ... Thoroughly researched and richly argued, World Without Design will prove valuable to anyone interested in the naturalistic tradition." - Troy Cross, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"Rea's is a dense and closely argued book, illustrating the convergence of philosophy of religion and sophisticated
metaphysics and representativeof the best of Christian philosophy today." - Philosophia Christi
