Abstract

The present review is a critical reflection on Kenny’s book What I believe. The autor tries to understand why Kenny is neither a theist nor an atheist, but an agnostic. He thinks that Kenny is not a theist because arguments for the existence of God always have for him logical weaknesses. According to the author, in this point appears Kenny’s “central belief”, namely that human logic makes reality to be true. Nevertheless, the author shows that Kenny is closer to the theist position, and that his conceptions of both the unity of the human being and of virtue are very similar to Christian moral teaching. The author also adds the comments on this review that Kenny has sent to him.
