The Future of the Philosophy of Religion 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-centred rather than a belief-centred activity
  • Gives attention to reflexive critical studies of 'religion' as socially constructed and historically located

Keywords: Philosophy of Religion, Material culture, belief, religious practice, ontology, metaphysics, realism, epistemology, Cartesian, interreligious dialog, philosophy of religion, study of religion, religious diversity, religion pluralism, religious study
