Exploring Philosophy of Religion: An Introductory Anthology
(Oxford University Press, 2009)
Exploring Philosophy of Religion: An Introductory Anthology features a collection of fifty-two classic and contemporary readings from Augustine, Anselm, Maimonides, Thomas Aquinas, David Hume, William James, John H. Hick, Alvin Plantinga, William Alston, Richard Swinburne, and others. Organized topically, the volume covers seven major areas: the concept of God, the existence of God, religious language, miracles and mysticism, belief in God, resurrection and immortality, and religious pluralism. Each reading is preceded by a detailed introduction and is enhanced by explanatory notes. In addition, the text includes an appendix to Cahn’s provocative and illuminating overview of the field—”God, Reason, and Religion”—which provides a synthesis and interpretation of the key issues raised in the readings. Steven M. Cahn is a professor of philosophy at the Graduate Center.
