Richard Bentley

Michael Gilleland has a post on Richard Bentley. Bentley was primarily a classicist; but he has some claim to fame in the philosophical world as well. His A Confutation of Atheism constituted the first Boyle lectures (1692), were a major fountainhead of early modern natural theology, and were a major milestone in a long line of attempts to present Newton's physics in a popular form and examine its philosophical implications. The only thing I've been able to find online by Bentley is the preface to his edition of Milton's Paradise Lost.
