Adams, Marilyn McCord

Adams, Marilyn McCord
   A co-founder and past president of the Society of Christian Philosophers, Marilyn Adams has done much work in the history of medieval philosophy, including a two-volume work on William of Ockham. She has also written on the problem of evil, asking whether 'horrendous evils' give us reason to doubt the goodness of God. In addition, Adams has written on the question of whether God's beliefs about one's future free actions are compatible with their freedom, suggesting that God's fore-belief may not be a 'hard fact' about the past. She is a priest of the Episcopal Church in the USA, married to Robert Merrihew Adams, and is currently Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford.
