Have there been any critiques of Feser in academia, particularly philosophy of religion? I'd also like to see if there have been critiques of Aristotelian-Thomism which is what Feser's framework is for two of his arguments in his book, "Five Proofs for Existence of God."

Recently I know that Graham Oppy, has published a journal "On Stage One of Feser's Aristotelian Proof" which he critiques not only his Aristotelian proof, but his Neo-Platonic and Rationalist proof as well. However I was wondering if anyone else has taken a shot at him.


The scholarly material I have come across is in academic journals :

1.Five Proofs of the Existence of God by Edward Feser Review by: Ricardo Barroso Batista Revista Portuguesa de Filosofia, T. 74, Fasc. 1, Pierre Duhem e Ernst Mach: Ciência e Filosofia / Pierre Duhem and Ernst Mach: Science and Philosophy (2018), pp. 333-338.

2.The Last Superstition: A Refutation of the New Atheism by Edward Feser Review by: Michael O'Halloran The Review of Metaphysics, Vol. 62, No. 4 (Jun., 2009), pp. 926-928.

3.Scholastic Metaphysics: A Contemporary Introduction by Edward FESER Review by: D. Q. McInerny The Review of Metaphysics, Vol. 68, No. 3 (MARCH 2015), pp. 653-654.

4.End and Agent (pp. 92-106) From: Aquinas on Virtue: A Causal Reading NICHOLAS AUSTIN Georgetown University Press (2017).

5.Reply to Critics John Kekes The Good Society, Vol. 15, No. 2 (2006), pp. 30-34.

6.THE ONE AND THE MANY: THE ONTOLOGY OF SCIENCE IN ARISTOTLE AND THOMAS AQUINAS Author(s): CURTIS L. HANCOCK Source: The Review of Metaphysics, Vol. 69, No. 2 (DECEMBER 2015), pp. 233-259: footnotes 6 & 8.

I hope these references will be of help.
