The articulation of religious beliefs, including beliefs about religious diversity, inevitably involves the use of philosophical ideas. Some philosophical positions discourage religious pluralism. Other positions encourage pluralism, but only superficial versions thereof. This book is based on the conviction that the philosophy articulated by Alfred North Whitehead encourages not only religious pluralism in the generic sense but deep religious pluralism. Thus it is offered as an alternative to the version of religious pluralism that has dominated the recent discussion, especially among Christian thinkers in the West--a version that has evoked a growing call to reject pluralism as such.
A groundbreaking scholarly work, Deep Religious Pluralism is based on the conviction that the philosophy articulated by Alfred North Whitehead encourages not only religious diversity but deep religious pluralism. Arising from a 2003 Center for Process Studies conference at Claremont Graduate University, this book offers an alternative to the version of religious pluralism that has dominated the recent discussion, especially among Christian thinkers in the West, which has evoked a growing call to reject pluralism as such.
Renowned contributors of a diversity of faiths include: Steve Odin, John Shunji Yakota, Sandra B. Lubarsky, Jeffery D. Long, Mustafa Ruzgar, Christopher Ives, Michael Lodahl, Chung-ying Cheng, Wang Shik Jang, and John B. Cobb Jr.
