Omnipotence as a Perfection of God
Basic Research Programme , 2012. No. 09.
Gorbatova Y. V.
This article deals with the concept of omnipotence, which is very important for contemporary analytic philosophy of religion. Within the analytic tradition it is usual to show an apparent tension between God’s omnipotence and other divine attributes. In response, some authors have proposed their own ideas on how the classical problems of omnipotence can be solved in terms of possible worlds theory. In this paper we consider the approaches developed by Geach, Adams and Plantinga. While admitting that each of them has made a significant contribution to the refinement of the concept of omnipotence, we point out a number of important challenges that these authors were not able to overcome.

The article analyzes the conditions of occurrence, key ideas and factors of success of temporalism – the dominant position describing God's relation to time in the contemporary analytic philosophy. Unlike traditional eternalism, which treats the being of God in terms of time transcendence, i.e. timelessness and the absence of duration, temporalism assumes the existence of ...
