This paper responds to post-structuralist criticisms of my book, Philosophy and the Study of Religions: A Manifesto, made by Craig Martin. In particular, it defends my realist accounts of human beliefs and of religions as structures that operate, respectively, in human subjectivity and in history, even when they are not named.
