Philosophy of religion in the 21st century by D. Z Phillips( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers the rare opportunity to assess, within a single volume, the leading schools of thought in contemporary philosophy of religion. Their exponents seek to meet objections made to their point of view and to relate it to the other schools represented. Further discussions between adherents of the different schools make it an ideal text for assessing the deep proximities and divisions which characterise contemporary philosophy of religion. The schools of thought represented are: philosophical theism, Reformed epistemology, Wittgensteinianism, Postmodernism, Critical Theory and Process Thought." -- BOOK JACKET
Kant and Kierkegaard on religion by D. Z Phillips( Book )

Religion without transcendence? by Timothy Tessin( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What can transcendence mean for us? We live in a world in which there are many conceptions of transcendence. Some philosophers say that they all point, in their way, to a transcendent realm, without which death and life's sorrows have the last word, while their opponents argue that since this realm is an illusion, we must use our own resources to meet life's trials. Others argue that moral and religious concepts of transcendence are obscured by philosophical notions of transcendence, and must be rescued from them. These conflicting views on a central issue in our culture are brought into sharp relief in the present collection
Philosophy and the grammar of religious belief by Mario Von der Ruhr( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers in this collection are concerned with the epistemology of religious belief. The contributors disagree on such issues as whether philosophers have a role to play in determining the reasonableness or intelligibility of religious beliefs, or whether philosophy properly understood is a descriptive task. But all the papers are informed by the belief that philosophical discussion should proceed by giving attention to the character of the religious beliefs and practices under consideration
Religion and Hume's legacy by D. Z Phillips( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether one agrees with him or not, there is no avoiding the challenge of Hume for contemporary philosophy of religion. The symposia in this stimulating collection reveal why, whether the discussions concern Hume on metaphysics and religion, "true religion," religion and ethics, religion and superstition, or miracles. For some, Hume's criticisms of religion cannot withstand them, while others claim that Hume can be answered on his own terms. All responses to Hume determine the style and spirit in which one pursues philosophy of religion today
Religion and Hume's legacy( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether one agrees with him or not, there is no avoiding the challenge of Hume for contemporary philosophy of religion. The symposia in this stimulating collection reveal why, whether the discussions concern Hume on metaphysics and religion, 'true religion', religion and ethics, religion and superstition, or miracles. For some, Hume's criticisms of religion are so devastating that religion cannot withstand them. Others disagree, and claim that Hume can be answered on his own terms. For others, while Hume shows us paths we should not take, these open up the way for a consideration of religious possibilities he never considered."--Jacket
