Much has been made about Anthony Flew’s “conversion” from atheism to deism. An article in The Atlantic suggests that all might not be quite as it seems. I’m not in a position to adjudicate, but something is a bit off.
(On a personal note, Flew has been a responsive and charming correspondent and an early supporter (a charter member) of the Michael Oakeshott Association.) I was thrilled to have him chair a session at the inaugural conference of the MOA in 2001. We chatted briefly about his editing of Language and Logic, and of Ryle, Gellner and Wittgenstein.
