Overview

Religion in a Pluralistic Age is a collection of selected papers presented at the Third International Conference on Philosophical Theology, which met in Bad Boll, Germany, in the summer of 1998. The conference was sponsored by the Highlands Institute for American Religious and Philosophical Thought, and its theme was «Public and Private Religion in a Pluralistic Age.» This theme explores interactions of public and private religion and ways in which both relate to an increasingly pluralistic age of diverse outlooks and forms of life. The Highlands Institute emphasizes the interface between theology and philosophy. It is especially concerned with theological efforts utilizing the American philosophical tradition, with the development of distinctively American religious thought, with themes relevant to the «Chicago School» of theology, and with naturalism in American religious thought.
