Introduction: Ineffability in Comparative Philosophical Perspective

Part of the Comparative Philosophy of Religion book series (COPR, volume 1)


This introductory chapter previews the content and conclusions of The Comparison Project’s 2013–2015 programming cycle on ineffability. Each of the 13 content lectures on ineffability is summarized, especially as it informs its corresponding essay in this volume. The comparative conclusions of the programming cycle and volume are also discussed, at least with regard to their methods and aims.
