Edward Feser (1968–) is a Catholic / Christian apologist writer of books such as Aristotle’s Revenge: The Metaphysical Foundations of Physical and Biological Sciences, The Last Superstition: A Refutation of the New Atheism, Aquinas, Scholastic Metaphysics: A Contemporary Introduction, Five Proofs of the Existence of God, and the co-author of By Man Shall His Blood Be Shed: A Catholic Defense of Capital Punishment.
A critic of New Atheists, Feser accuses his opponents of misreading philosophers like Thomas Aquinas, Aristotle, and Leibniz and promotes a reversion to Aristotelian-Thomistic metaphysics.
His book The Last Superstition claims to be a refutation of the New Atheism, which he accuses of "intellectual dishonesty, philosophical shallowness, and historical, theological, and scientific ignorance"; he tries to prove the existence of God starting with Aristotle's teleological metaphysics, in contrast to mechanical Newtonian metaphysics which he rejects.
In contrast to some modern theologians, he also claims that dogs don't go to Heaven. His opinion about unicorns is unrecorded.
