    A Critique of foundationalist conceptions of comprehensive doctrines in the religion in politics-debate2009In: International journal for philosophy of religion, ISSN 0020-7047, E-ISSN 1572-8684, Vol. 65, 11-28 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper comprises a critical examination of foundationalist conceptions of comprehensive doctrines. I argue that John Rawls, the towering figure of this debate, operates with a foundationalist conception of comprehensive doctrines that has shaped the debate's view of relevant alternatives (often referred to as exclusivism and inclusivism).

    A Problem with Alston's Indirect Analogy-Argument from Religious Experience2006In: Religious studies (Print), ISSN 0034-4125, E-ISSN 1469-901X, Vol. 42, 329-341 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, William Alston's arguemnt from religious experience in Perceiving God is characterized and assessed as an indirect analogy-argument. Such arguments, I propose,, should establish two similarities between sense perception (sp) and religious experience (cmp): a structural and a functional. I argue that Alston neglects functional similarity, and that sp and cmp actually perform different functions within the practices they belong to. Alston's argument is therefore significantly weaker than generally assumed. Finally, I argue that regardless of whether an increased emphasis on fruits could strengthen indirect analogy-arguments or not, this is not a strategy available to Alston as long as he retains his commitments to religious exclusivism and a religious metaphysical realism.

    Forces by Which We Live: Religion and Religious Experience from the Perspective of a Pragmatic Philosophical Anthropology2002Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study argues that a pragmatic conception of religion would enable philosophers to make important contributions to our ability to handle concrete problems involving religion. The term 'philosophical anthropology', referring to different interpretative frameworks, which philosophers draw on to develop conceptions of human phenomena, is introduced. It is argued that the classical pragmatists embraced a philosophical anthropology significantly different from that embraced by most philosophers of religion; accordingly, pragmatism offers an alternative conception of religion. It is suggested that a conception of religion is superior to another if it makes more promising contributions to our ability to handle extra-philosophical problems of religion.

    A pragmatic philosophical anthropology urges us to view human practices as responses to shared experienced needs. Religious practices develop to resolve tensions in our views of life. The pictures of human flourishing they persent reconstruct our views of life, thereby allowing more significant interaction with the environment, and a more significant life.

    A modified version of reflective equilibrium is developed to show how we, on a pragmatic conception of religion, are able to supply resources for criticism and reform of religious practices, so the extra-philosophical problems of religion can be handled. Mainstream philosophy of religion attempts to offer such resources by presenting analogy-arguments from religious experience. Those arguments are, however, unconvincing. A comparison of the two conceptions of religion thus results in a recommendation to reconstruct philosophy of religion.

    Justification and Critique: The Will to Believe and the Public Nature of Religious Belief2016In: William James Studies, ISSN 1933-8295, E-ISSN 1933-8295, Vol. 12, no 2, 28-51 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    “The Will to Believe” remains one of the most intriguing and controversial pragmatic contributions to philosophy of religion. Richard Rorty has offered an interesting analysis of its controversial character and suggests that we should see James as arguing for a privatization of religion: the right to adopt a believing attitude is limited to those private projects that in no way affect others. I propose another reading that (a) acknowledges that religious (and other existential commitments) have an inevitably public dimension and (b) uses that element as a vehicle for critical reflection. To that end, I make a heuristic distinction between two phases of inquiry that I label justification and critique, and go on to argue that when combined with a pragmatic philosophical anthropology, a Jamesian approach helps clear the ground for a more comprehensive critical reflection on religion and religious traditions. Whereas Rorty sees any acknowledgement of a public dimension of religious belief as a threat to democracy, I believe that we can rather say that such acknowledgements offer resources for those who seek to develop more democratic forms of religion.

    Philosophy of Religion as Cultural Politics: A(nother) Rortian Proposal2014In: American Journal of Theology and Philosophy, ISSN 0194-3448, Vol. 35, no 1, 25-41 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper turns the tools of cultural politics that Richard Rorty developed in his later philosophy against Rortian anticlericalism. It is argued that Rorty is insufficiently attentive to the distinction between ideal end-states and what John Dewey called “ends in view”, and this leads him to formulate a cultural politics of religion that, ultimately, risks playing into the hands of his opponents in the debate over the role of religion in democratic societies. Drawing on work by Stuart Rosenbaum, I also sketch an alternative version of a Rortian cultural politics of religion that breaks with the foundationalist character of both Rorty’s and his opponents’ views of religion.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I draw attention to the central role that moral critique plays (or may play) in our reflection on religious practices. I argue that pragmatism provides helpful tools to articulate and develop such critical reflection.

    Public deliberation as separate or embedded: Deweyan democracy and its relation to political liberalism2007In: Minerva, ISSN 1393-614X, E-ISSN 1393-614X, Vol. 11, 1-29 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores two different strategies that may be useful to give substance to Deweyan democracy?s claim that in order for democratic associations to develop into communities, citizens need to learn how to conduct inquiry in a social setting. The two strategies reflect a principal division among views of public deliberation. The first strategy, the separation strategy, closely resembles Rawls? political liberalism by advocating the development of a separate sphere of public deliberation, guided by factual and normative assumptions that we need not accept anywhere outside that sphere. Comprehensive doctrines are to be held outside of public deliberation, a move which makes possible a rather straightforward application of Dewey?s theory of inquiry. The second strategy, the embeddedness strategy, stresses the fact that public deliberation is inevitably embedded in broader spheres of social life, and that the development towards community must be piecemeal, and go hand in hand with developments in social life as a whole. I argue that there are weighty reasons for doubting the feasibility of the separation strategy, and I also argue that these reasons are relevant for our evaluation of all versions of the separation strategy, including political liberalism. I conclude that one of Deweyan democracy?s most important assets, which deserves further examination, is its insight that reflection on public deliberation needs to take its embedded character into account.

    Rortys kulturpolitik och frågan om religion i det offentliga samtalet2011In: Svensk teologisk kvartalskrift, ISSN 0039-6761, Vol. 87, no 1, 26-34 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper comprises a critical discussion of Richard Rorty’s proposal to reorient philosophy of religion in the direction of cultural politics – that is, a never-ending set of negotiations about the kind of society we want to live in and how to achieve it. While I find much of value in Rorty’s approach, I show that Rorty neglects to take his own suggestions seriously enough, something which becomes particularly obvious in his own cultural politics-approach to the question of the role of religion in public deliberation. Here, Rorty neglects the importance of the discourse which serves as the background against which different cultural politics-proposals are understood and assessed, and I show that the analysis of religious belief in terms of “faith” that he suggests as a matter of fact plays right into the hands of his opponents within the religion in public deliberation-debate.

     

    To retain what is fruitful in Rorty’s approach, then, I argue that we need to pay more attention to the dominant discourse within a given field, and seek ways to challenge rather than reproduce assumptions within that discourse. Such an “improved” version of cultural politics may well function as one, among, several, approaches to problems within philosophy of religion, and need not exclude that we, in dealing with other problems, operate with a more “traditional” approach.

    What's Wrong with the Adequacy-Argument? A Pragmatic Diagnosis2011In: Sophia - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion, Metaphysical Theology and Ethics, ISSN 0038-1527, Vol. 50, no 1, 11-23 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When confronted with the question of which philosophical conception of religion to consider most adequate, many philosophers appeal to what I call the adequacy-arguemnt: that we should prefer the one that looks most adequate from the perspective of religious believers. In this paper, I provide a critique of the adequacy-argument based on a pragmatic analysis of adequacy-judgments according to which reflective adequacy-judgments are forward-looking, and hence include considerations of the consequences of adopting different judgments as guides for conduct. It is this forward-looking character that is virtually absent with the current adequacy-debate. The major advantage of a pragmatic analysis if adequacy is itself forward-looking: it would enable philosophers of religion to play a more critical and constructive role vis-a-vis religious practices than presently.

    The customization of science: The impact of religious and political worldviews on contemporary science2014Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book explores whether and how religious and secular worldviews and political ideologies held by scientists, citizens, decision-makers and politicians influence science as practiced and understood today. In this book, customized science is defined as a science built according to - or altered and fitted to - a particular group's specifications, that is, its needs, interests or values., its political ideology or worldview. It is science governed not merely by goals such as increased knowledge and explanatory power, but also by goals such as economic growth, sustainable development, the equality of women or the end of religion. The contributions to this book discuss, with regard to particular worldviews and themes connected to the public role of science, whether science is increasingly becoming customized to fit the needs and interests of various groups in society, but also what the consequences of such a development may be both for science and society
