One of Antony Flew's most influential professional works was his 1976 The Presumption of Atheism in which Flew forwarded the proposition that the question of God's existence should begin with the presumption of atheism: "What I want to examine is the contention that the debate about the existence of God should properly begin from the presumption of atheism, that the onus of proof must lie upon the theist.

Antony Flew has written one great book. Clearly Antony Flew was on a mission when he wrote his "Introduction to Western Philosophy. It also gives a thorough explanation of the major debates in philosophy throughout history. It is very carefully crafted, providing an unparalleled introduction not only to Western philosophers and their ideas, but also to approaches to philosophical thought. Flew organizes them by idea rather than by chronology, so that the philosophers' arguments make sense in the context of their debates with other philosophers.

Rene Descartes asserted in the 17th century that human beings have free will. Unlike automata they are the authors of their actions and can rightly be praised or blamed for them. A century later David Hume said that human actions are determined with the same necessity as are events in the natural world and set about reconciling liberty and necessity. This debate has been continuously pursued by philosophers of the modern period who argue variously that the issues cannot be reconciled or who assert, as in the case of behaviourism, the primacy of necessity. Antony Flew and Godfrey Vesey share the view that agency and personal responsibility are vital in the debate but disagree profoundly about how this claim can be defended and on what grounds it has priority. Did Hume err in being an empiricist (Vesey's line) or in not being an empiricist (Flew). Is determinism wholly false (Flew) or neither true nor false (Vesey). The development of this disagreement is informed by an awareness of the contributions of philosophers from Plato and Aristotle to Wittgnestein and Strawson.
