Description

Keith Yandell's Philosophy of Religion: a Contemporary Introduction was one of the first textbooks to explore the philosophy of religion with reference to religions other than Christianity. A decade later, this fully revised and updated edition deals lucidly with representative views from Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Jainism, as well as addressing topical debates and issues such as as intelligent design.

Exploring the nature of religion and philosophy, and introducing key thinkers in the history of the field, Yandell guides students through the varieties of religion and of religious experience, the relationships between faith and reason and religion and science, and examines fundamental problems religion seeks to address, such as the nature of ultimate reality and the problem of evil.

This diverse and comprehensive approach makes this rich and stimulating reading for students of philosophy of religion at undergraduate level.

features include:

  • suggestions for further reading
  • discussion questions
  • a glossary of philosophical terms
  • list of key figures in the philosophy of religion
