Religion and Morality, Paperback / softback Book

Religion and Morality Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Philosophy of Religion Series series


Religion and Morality addresses central issues arising from religion's relation to morality.

Part I offers a sympathetic but critical appraisal of the claim that features of morality provide evidence for the truth of religious belief.

Part II examines divine command theories, objections to them, and positive arguments in their support.

Part III explores tensions between human morality, as ordinarily understood, and religious requirements by discussing such issues as the conflict between Buddhist and Christian pacifism and requirements of justice, whether 'virtue' without a love of God is really a vice, whether the God of the Abrahamic religions could require us to do something that seems clearly immoral, and the ambiguous relations between religious mysticism and moral behavior. Covering a broad range of topics, this book draws on both historical and contemporary literature, and explores afresh central issues of morality and religion offering new insights for students, academics and the general reader interested in philosophy and religion.
