Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights how a theological insight may assist a philosophical reflection on religious truth and, in so doing, a philosophical hermeneutics of religion. From a theological-epistemological perspective, religious truth cannot be thought of apart from, or without an irreducible link to, particularity and contingency. It engages the contemporary philosophical discussion regarding the hermeneutics of religion in continental phenomenology, deconstructionism and hermeneutics. The incarnation of God in Jesus Christ is ultimately the deepest realization of the traces or fragments of salvation and truth to be found in other religions.

Keywords: incarnation; Jesus Christ; particularity; radical hermeneutics; religious truth
