Chapter Summary

This chapter covers work in religious epistemology, broadly so-called. It includes many entries on the traditional problematic of 'faith and reason' both in its historical and its contemporary guises such as the nature and 'logic' of religious belief and belief formation, as well as particular questions concerning the consistency, coherence, verifiability, falsifiability, rationality, justifiability and truth of religious belief. Since constructive and critical attempts to answer these questions often employ general epistemology, relevant work on foundationalism, relativism, reliabilism, pragmatism, post-modernism and traditionalism has been included as well. The chapter has a number of entries on the nature of theological method, on the question whether theology may count as a science, on 'other minds' and on theological 'realism'.

Keywords: post-modernism; religious belief; religious epistemology
