Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Richards (editor, Scottish Journal of Religious Studies) examines the writings of prominent Hindu, Buddhist, and Christian thinkers, comparing the views of Gandhi, Tillich, Bonhoeffer and liberation theologians, and contrasting the essentialism of Vivekananda and Schleiermacher with the relativism of Troeltsch and Toynbee. He examines the Wittgensteinian approach to the philosophy of religion versus the traditional approach to shed light on the nature of religious language and the problem of seeking external criteria for the truth of religion.
