Philosophy of Religion
Full Product Description
Religious belief is not just about abstract intellectual argument; it also impinges on all aspects of human life. John Cottingham's Philosophy of Religion opens up fresh perspectives on the philosophy of religion, arguing that the detached neutrality of much of contemporary philosophising may be counterproductive - hardening us against the receptivity required for certain kinds of important evidence to become salient. This book covers all the traditional areas of the subject, including the meaning of religious claims, the existence of God and the relation between religion and morality, as well as the role of spiritual praxis and how religious belief affects questions about the meaning of life, human suffering and mortality. While preserving the clarity and rigour that are rightly prized in the analytic tradition, the book also draws on insights from literary and other sources, and aims to engage a wide readership.
- Connects philosophy of religion with many aspects of ordinary human experience
- Shows how fruitful philosophy of religion need not, and should not, be about abstract intellectual argument alone
- Deploys a wide variety of resources - logical, imaginative, poetic, literary and scriptural - so as to deepen our philosophical understanding of religious belief
