Weingartner shows that an essential part of natural or philosophical theology and even a part of theology can be treated axiomatically. God’s essence, omniscience, omnipotence, creating activity, and all-goodness are described by axioms and by theorems proved from them.
The purpose of thi s book i s to show that a consi derable part of what i s called
Natural T heology or Philosop hical T heology can be bui lt up as an ax i omati c system
(ASG). In parti cular, i t i s shown that God’s attri butes (ch.1), omni sci ence (ch.2),
omni potence (ch.3), benevolence (all- goodness, ch.5), and God as creator (ch.4)
can be characteri zed by ax i oms and by theorems as consequences of the ax i oms.
Further ax i oms say that God can do thi ngs that he does not do nor wi lls to do,
and that God i s a necessary cause and precondi ti on for everythi ng that happens
i n creati on (i n the uni verse) but not a su?ci ent one for everythi ng (li ke moral
evi l). Moreover, ax i oms say that God’s wi ll and love select (he does not wi ll nor
love every good) and that hi s goodness i mpli es hi s justi ce, hi s mercy, and hi s love.
Chapter 6 conti nues thi s study wi th Jesus Chri st, the Savi our. Thi s chapter treats
ax i omati cally a part of T heology and thus goes beyond Natural T heology. Chapter 7
o?ers a proof of consi stency for a consi derable and i mportant part of the ax i omati c
system ASG by constructi ng a model i n whi ch the most i mportant ax i oms and
theorems are sati sfi ed.

Novel Photoactive Materials
Photoactivity represents the ability of a material, generally speaking a semiconductor, to become active when interacting with light. It can be declined in many ways, and several functionalities arising from this behavior of materials can be exploited, all leading to positive repercussions on our environment. There are several...
Silicon Photonics: An Introduction The observation by Gordon Moore in 1965 (now universally referred to as Moore’s law) that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit would double every couple of years has become a beacon that continues to drive the electronics industry. Integrated circuits have grown exponentially from the 30-transistor devices of 1965 to...
