Miller's metaphysics, together with his method of God, is huge, deep, and unique, with the aptitude to make a fruitful contribution to modern philosophy. but it has no longer got the severe cognizance it merits.

Miller's paintings merits severe awareness due to its thorough and unique safeguard of 3 hugely debatable positions: that lifestyles is a true estate of concrete participants; that it's attainable to turn out, with out assuming any precept of adequate cause, that there's an uncaused explanation for the universe; and that the uncaused reason is the straightforward God of classical theism. Miller's place on life is a crucial substitute in present analytical philosophy to what Miller calls the "Frege-Russell-Quine" idea, and the neo-Meinongian positions of Terence Parsons and Ed Zalta. Miller's argument for an uncaused reason behind the universe has been defined the most bold theistic arguments produced through a well-respected, modern, analytic thinker. Analysis of present: Barry Miller's method of God is the 1st transparent, systematic interpretation of Miller's theistic philosophy.
