How should one do religious epistemology?
2000 (English)In: Perspectives on contemporary philosophy of religion, Luther-Agricola-Seura, Helsinki , 2000, 136-151 p.Chapter in book (Other scientific)
The topic of this conference is the question what contemporary philosophy of religion is and what it could, and should, be in the future. I will approach this subject by focusing on one particular area of philosophy of religion, namely religious epistemology or, if you prefer, the epistemology of religion. What I want to bring to your attention, perhaps a bit surprisingly, is the discussion about epistemology and rationality that is prevalent in contemporary theology. What is interesting and worth reflecting on is that many contemporary theologians do what we call religious epistemology in a way that is significantly different from the way it is typically done by philosophers of religion (at least of the analytic tradition). The purpose here is to consider some of these contemporary theologians and to assess critically how they argue and whether this is a good way of doing religious epistemology.
