Philosophy of Religion: Religious Epistemology

Parimal Patil


Philosophers belonging to nearly every religious tradition have offered arguments in support of their traditions' most basic doctrines. We consider, in detail, some of the epistemological frameworks within which these arguments have been (and continue to be) offered. Specifically, we discuss: (1) Reformed Epistemology; (2) Virtue Epistemology; (3) The Epistemology of Religious Experience; (4) Proper Function; and (5) Buddhist, Hindu, and Jaina Epistemologies.
