Abstract

In this paper I shall assess Clarke's assertion that all definitions of miracles that purport to satisfy the criterion of religious inclusiveness should substitute the term 'supernatural' for 'non-natural'. In addition, I shall attempt to strengthen Clarke's conception of the supernatural by offering an analysis of what it means for something to be 'above' nature. Lastly, I shall offer a new argument as to why Clarke's intention-based definition of miracles is necessarily less religiously inclusive than Mumford's causation-based definition.
