Rationality and religious trust 01/07/1997 - 30/06/1999

Abstract

Recent philosophy of religion can be described as marked by a tension. An ethically oriented trend reduces religion to a moral outlook or attitude. A metaphysically oriented trend runs the risk of confusing 'that God exists' with a belief 'in' God. This project tries to find a middle road between these extremes by elaborating a religuious epistemology. 'Religious knowledge' refers to knowledge of God but also to the knowledge that enables a religious modulation of life. Knowledge of God cannot be separated from a knowing-how to give God a place in one's life. Precisely this relatedness must provide the middle road mentioned.

    Abstract

    Recent philosophy of religion can be described as marked by a tension. An ethically oriented trend reduces religion to a moral outlook or attitude. A metaphysically oriented trend runs the risk of confusing 'that God exists' with a belief 'in' God. The project tries to steer a middle course between these extremes by elaborating a religious epistemology. An analysis of 'religious knowledge' could teach us that knowledge of God cannot be separated from knowing how to give God a place in one's life.
