Greek philosophy ceased to be creative after Plotinus in the 3rd century ad. The main aim of Indian philosophy was freedom from the suffering and tension caused by the body and the senses and by attachment to worldly things. Upon death, the human soul may ascend to the upper realm, where it may come to rest among angels, in the intelligible world, or even beyond this, close to God, Immortality is the gift of God.

It was strongly reflective of the philosophical idea of pragmatism, revealing truths that can be observed and experienced with physical consequences. God is going to make the "pot so sweet in heaven" that could not not do good If we've been created in the image of God, we've been created with the capacity to love God; free-will-to choose to love (ex: Adam & Eve; they chose not to love God=choosing "death," translating as inability to love yourself because goodness is absent) If you believe in the existence of God you will be better at things such as science; theism makes you a better scientist/philosopher If you believe God exist you don't have to prove it, the burden then falls on the atheist (who then has to prove God doesn't exist) Cognitation - knowledge of the physical world; what we do in science; domain of science Sensation - sensory perception of physical objects; haven't thought about it just yet its just a sensation; imagining (imaging) Plato logic to be found in knowledge; nature gives us sensation and cognitation to engage in higher thinking A rationalist; believed you could prove God exist; and that it is good logic that will get you there When proving the existence of a God one must understand the definition of God; that being about whom no greater can be seen; the perfect being The idea of perfection you hold comes from perfection itself; The only way you can know that God should be perfect is because God put it in your head => thus he exits Refutes Guanillo's attack as a false analogy; the island analogy doesn't logically follow it cannot be used to compare God Living during the 13th century which is starting to see the decline of popularity of the Roman Catholic Church with contributions by: the Bubonic and black plaque; faith wavers when there is tragedy, history tells us; rise of universities in Italy, France, England; papel controversy a theologian doing philosophy; processes things slowly and meticulously; believed knowledge of God is the highest knowledge truths of religion contradict the truths of philosophy and vice versa; they control each other In response to no creation ex nihilo); Based on Aristotle's sensory experience, that things cause other things to happen; Can we use philosophy to figure out the cause of everything and find a God that is causing => this is to engage in an infinite regress; While we may be able to prove this is an uncaused cause, it is reasonable to think based on what we think that there is something that started; We can't isolate or speculate; but it is not unreasonable; Aquinas's thought: Can God be this uncaused cause?
