Abstract:

The Philosophy and the Study of Religions advocates a radical transformation of the discipline from its current, narrow focus on questions of God, to a fully global form of critical reflection on religions in all their variety and dimensions. Opens the discipline of philosophy of religion to the religious diversity that characterizes the world today; builds bridges between philosophy of religion and the other interpretative and explanatory approaches in the field of religious studies; provides a manifesto for a global approach to the subject that is a practice-centered rather than a belief-centered activity; and gives attention to reflexive critical studies of 'religion' as socially constructed and historically located. -- Provided by publisher.
