Religious language and the task of theology in a scientific and eco-sensitive age
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Theology, Department of Theology.

Abstract [en]

In this paper I shall evaluate a trend in theology; an attempt to naturalize and reinterpret the task of theology and the nature and function of religious language. I propose that religious naturalists adopt a pragmatic view of religious language, and I also introduce the notion of Ecologically Mindful Attitude (EMA). I reach the conclusion that this pragmatic understanding of religion is not successful and that it can be challenged on several levels.
