Philosophy and the Grammar of Religious Belief

  • Timothy Tessin

Part of the Claremont Studies in the Philosophy of Religion book series (CSPR)

About this book


The papers in this collection are concerned with the epistemology of religious belief. The contributors disagree on such issues as whether philosophers have a role to play in determining the reasonableness or intelligibility of religious beliefs, or whether philosophy properly understood is a descriptive task. But all the papers are informed by the belief that philosophical discussion should proceed by giving attention to the character of the religious beliefs and practices under consideration.
