Introduction: Old Questions and New Frontiers in the Philosophy of Religion

  • J. Aaron Simmons
Part of the Palgrave Frontiers in Philosophy of Religion book series (PFPR)


In this introduction to the volume, Simmons offers a general survey of the state of philosophy of religion as a discourse that faces ambiguities about its future. Arguing that focusing on negative theology as a resource for contemporary philosophy of religion allows for constructive engagement between analytic and continental traditions, between philosophy and religious studies, and also fosters cross-cultural inquiry, Simmons concludes by outlining the contents of the volume and the importance of the current project.
