An Interpretation of Religion 1986–1987

John Hick

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

An Interpretation of Religion is an expanded version of John Hick’s 1986-1987 Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh, in which he sets forth a sophisticated and detailed case for a pluralist interpretation of religious experience. On the basis of an extended Kantian epistemology, Hick argues that the major religious traditions of both East and West constitute conceptually diverse, yet equally authentic, responses to ‘the Real’ (Hick’s preferred term for the postulated noumenal ground of religious experience) insofar as it has impinged upon human consciousness.
KEY WORDS: Pluralism, Pluralistic hypothesis, Post-axial religion, Religious traditions, Religious experience, Religious ambiguity, Religious realism, Salvation, Liberation, Kant, Kantian, Myth, Mythological
