(p.159) Chapter 6 Trajectories of Peircean Philosophical Theology
C. S. Peirce and the Nested Continua Model of Religious Interpretation

Gary Slater

Oxford University Press

This chapter contextualizes the theological speculations warranted by the nested continua model. It begins with a brief analysis of Peirce’s own writings on religion, particularly his Monist series of 1891 through 1893 and his “Neglected Argument for the Reality of God,” from 1908. Following this, it presents some of the most important figures in terms of the religious dimension of Peirce’s thought. The relevant works of Michael Raposa and Robert Corrington are discussed, with acknowledgement as well for such younger scholars of Peirce and religion as Anette Ejsing, Brandon Daniel-Hughes, and Leon Niemoczynski. The problems this chapter addresses are: how to think systematically about the religious dimension of Peirce’s writings; as well as how to trace the trajectories that Peircean philosophical theology has taken in recent decades.

Keywords:   Michael Raposa, Robert Corrington, Neglected Argument, Monist series, Anette Ejsing, Leon Niemoczynski, Brandon Daniel-Hughes
