    Descartes on God's Ability to Do the Logically Impossible.Richard R. La Croix - 1984 - Canadian Journal of Philosophy 14 (3):455-475.
    With very few exceptions philosophers believe that no account of the doctrine of divine omnipotence is adequate if it entails that God can do what is logically impossible. Descartes is credited with believing otherwise. In his article ‘Descartes on the Creation of the Eternal Truths’ Harry Frankfurt attributes to Descartes the belief that God is ‘a being for whom the logically impossible is possible’. In addition, Frankfurt claims that because of this belief Descartes’ account of God's omnipotence is open to (...)

    Divine Omniprescience: Are Literary Works Eternal Entities?1: RICHARD R. LA CROIX.Richard R. La Croix - 1979 - Religious Studies 15 (3):281-287.
    There are two quite common views which appear to be embraced by a large number of aestheticians as well as a large number of nonaestheticians. It is quite commonly believed by many of both groups that God is omniscient with respect to the future, that is, that God knows everything that will ever occur. I refer to this belief as the doctrine of divine omniprescience. It is also quite common to many of both groups to believe that literary authorship is (...)

    Aquinas on the Self-Evidence of God's Existence.Richard R. La Croix - 1976 - Canadian Journal of Philosophy 6 (3):443-454.
    In the Summa Theologia I, beginning at question 2, article 3, and in the Summa Contra Gentiles I, beginning at chapter 13, Aquinas provides five proofs for the existence of God. These proofs are intended to demonstrate that God exists and to provide the foundation for a larger program to demonstrate many other doctrines which are held by faith. However, the program which Aquinas sets up for himself in the two great Summae is trivial and unnecessary if the existence of (...)

    Omniprescience and Divine Determinism: RICHARD R. LA CROIX.Richard R. La Croix - 1976 - Religious Studies 12 (3):365-381.
    In this essay I will try to show that there are what would appear to be some unnoticed consequences of the doctrine of divine foreknowledge. For the purposes of this discussion I will simply assume that future events are possible objects of knowledge and, hence, that foreknowledge is possible. Accordingly, I will not be concerned with discussing such questions as the status of truth-values for future contingent propositions or whether knowledge is justified true belief. Furthermore, I will not be concerned (...)
