About this title

Synopsis:

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 philosophizing 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 rigor 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.

Book Description:

John Cottingham's Philosophy of Religion shows how fruitful discussion of the philosophy of religion is not just about abstract intellectual argument; it also impinges on many aspects of ordinary human experience. Cottingham covers the main topics of the subject, including the meaning of religious claims, the existence of God and the relation between religion and morality, while also exploring the nature of spirituality and asking how religious belief affects questions about the meaning of life, human suffering and mortality.
