Religion in Philosophy and Theology

Edited by Agata Bielik-Robson, Helen De Cruz, Asle Eikrem, Hartmut von Sass, and Heiko Schulz

Religions are core phenomena of human life. In order to understand, evaluate and adjudicate between them, it is not sufficient to be aware of 'the facts'; it is necessary to place these facts within the context of what seems possible and plausible, to shed a critical light on the self-conception of religious realities and to explore their relationships to other forms of (dealing with) reality. This is done in a wide array of disciplines whose thematic perspectives, methods and overall objectives vary. Among these, philosophy of religion and theology are underrepresented but vital voices within international research. The main purpose of the series Religion in Philosophy and Theology (RPT) is to provide a forum for testing different approaches within these two disciplines, and to explore both their individual and combined theoretical potential, without giving preference to specific theological or philosophical approaches or advocating certain religious or anti-religious viewpoints. In doing so, it provides the opportunity to discuss and assess the pros and cons of widely differing religious, philosophical and theological perspectives, situated within multiple religious traditions within a globalized world. Among the essential requirements for publication in the series are clarity of presentation, rigor of argument, and the willingness to subject one's own ideas and concepts to the criticism of others. RPT publishes relevant specialized monographs, outstanding habilitations and dissertations as well as collected volumes.

The series is overseen by an international editorial board of philosophers and theologians. Enquiries about publishing in the series can be addressed either to the series editors or to the publisher.
