Wittgenstein and Philosophy of Religion


An exciting introduction to the contribution which the later Wittgenstein made to the philosophy of religion. Although his writings on the subject have been few, Wittgenstein developed influential and controversial theories on both religion (and magic) which emphasize the distinctive nature of religious discourse and how this nature can be misunderstood when viewed in direct competition with science.The contributors of this collection shed new light on the perennial debate between faith and reason. The result is a collection that is both informative and stimulating.
