Religious Ambiguity and Religious Diversity

Robert McKim (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The analysis of perceptual religious experience proposed by William Alston does not undermine the case for the Critical Stance. On the contrary, religious diversity is a more serious problem for his doxastic practice epistemology than he recognizes. In general, the outputs of doxastic practices that are functioning in conditions of ambiguity, and in conditions in which there is disagreement, ought to be viewed with some suspicion, even by those who engage in the practices in question.

Keywords:   Critical Stance, doxastic practice epistemology, perceptual religious experience
