Alvin Plantinga | Features | University of Notre DameOver his 50 years of philosophical work, Plantinga broke new ground in philosophy of religion. He is especially noted for his work on the problem of evil and vigorous defenses of the rationality of belief in God. Plantinga is the John A. His foundational achievements include his free-will defense, which addresses the logical problem of evil — or the belief that evil cannot logically coexist with an all-powerful, all-knowing and all-benevolent God. Plantinga countered by claiming that even an all-powerful God could not create free creatures who always choose good; consequently, an all-benevolent God could not stop evil without eliminating the still-greater good of free will. Plantinga's view has been widely accepted, even among proponents of the original atheistic argument.
