“Mark Nowacki’s book is clearly and elegantly written, and does an especially good job of making the mathematical background of the controversies surrounding the idea of an actual infinite accessible to lay readers. The central thesis of the book – that the impossibility of an infinite past can best be demonstrated when the argument is cast in terms of ‘real-substantial’ possibility – is quite novel, and will be sure to provoke a good deal of critical comment. This is a significant contribution to the literature on the kalam cosmological argument, and will be essential reading for anyone doing serious research on this topic.”

Professor of Philosophy, University of Colorado-Boulder

“It is gratifying that the ancient kalam cosmological argument, so long neglected by post-Kantian philosophy, is at last receiving renewed philosophical attention. Mark Nowacki not only surveys thoroughly the current discussion of the argument but contributes positively to it, principally by his proposed analysis of the crucial modal notions employed in the argument and so often misunderstood by its critics.”
