C. A. McIntosh

Welcome to my website, where I host my academic and popular work, as well as the most comprehensive collection of arguments for God’s existence in the world.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in philosophy at Calvin College, Master of Arts in Philosophy at Cornell University, and Doctor of Philosophy in philosophy at Cornell University. My area of specialty is philosophy, with special interest in philosophy of religion. Find me also on Philpapers and Academia.edu.

Besides the occasional adjuncting gig, I have the pleasure of working from home in God’s Country, central Ohio, where I am mostly occupied with amateur DIY projects, even more amateur homesteading efforts, and, most amateurish of all, being a Dad.

  • Rational Foundationalism. Dissertation (2020). Abstract: If everything has an explanation, as the PSR says, so too does the fundamental being appealed to as the explanation of everything else. I argue that the fundamental being is explained by its parts, which are in turn explained by each other. The proposal requires a new way of thinking about absolute and relative fundamentality, as well as the divine the attributes of aseity and simplicity.
