The Significance of Religious Experience

Show Summary Details

Preview

This book explores the foundations of religious commitment in the domains of metaphysics/epistemology and the ethical. Throughout, the book takes a literary (rather than philosophical) approach to theology that nevertheless makes room for philosophical exploration of religion. The book rejects the usual picture of religious life sitting atop a metaphysical foundation, in need of epistemological justification.

Keywords: religion; Judaism; religious experience; doctrine; evil; faith; awe; theology; belief; exile; forgiveness; Wittgenstein
