Synopsis

Philosophy and the Study of Religions: A Manifesto advocates a radical transformation of the discipline from its current, narrow focus on questions of God, to a fully global form of critical reflection on religions in all their variety and dimensions. * Opens the discipline of philosophy of religion to the religious diversity that characterizes the world today * Builds bridges between philosophy of religion and the other interpretative and explanatory approaches in the field of religious studies * Provides a manifesto for a global approach to the subject that is a practice-centred rather than a belief-centred activity * Gives attention to reflexive critical studies of 'religion' as socially constructed and historically located
