A Programme of Work

  • Patrick Sherry
Part of the Library of Philosophy and Religion book series (LPR)


In the first two chapters of this book I have discussed the work of Wittgenstein and his followers, and come up with several serious unresolved difficulties. The rest of this book will attempt to go beyond what they have achieved and to meet some of these difficulties. My purpose so far has not been to deny that religion embodies language-games and forms of life, but to point out that such a claim still leaves us with the tasks of elucidating their special nature and of coping with many philosophical problems. I have also, of course, sought to attack certain positions about justification which have accompanied this claim.
