Philosophy of Religion in the 21st Century (Claremont Studies in the Philosophy of Religion)

"Scholars who are interested in getting up-to-date in contemporary philosophy of religion will find this book quite valuable."--Daniel A. Dombrowski, Religious Studies Review

The symposia and discussions presented here represent the proceedings of the 1999 annual philosophy of religion conference which took place at Claremont Graduate University. Previous publications in the series Claremont Studies in the Philosophy of Religion are: Philosophy and the Grammar of Religious Belief; Religion and Morality; Can Religion Be Explained Away?; Religion without Transcendence?; Religion and Hume’s Legacy; and Kant and Kierkegaard on Religion. It was thought appropriate in 1999 to prepare for the year 2000 by presenting a volume on the present state of philosophy of religion. It was impossible to include everything, so choice was made on the basis of movements which it was thought had to be represented. On the other hand, the conference was arranged with considerable trepidation, since there was always the danger that the six philosophical schools would pass each other by like ships in the night. The message in my Thai fortune-cookie, opened in the closing banquet of the conference, would have summed up my foreboding at its outset. It read, ‘You would be wise not to seek too much from others at this time.’ For once my fortune-cookie was not uncannily revelatory, since, as the discussions reveal, genuine attempts were made to probe and explore difficulties connected with each point of view. I am not going to rehearse these in this introduction. Instead, I am going to single out a feature of the conference which struck me most forcibly as its organizer.
