DescriptionContentsAuthors

Over the last few decades, philosophy of religion has regained its position as one of the central areas of analytic philosophy and attracted much attention from scholars in numerous fields. New Waves in Philosophy of Religion presents cutting-edge research by some of the best philosophers of religion of the new generation. They discuss perennial problems and emerging issues from refreshingly new points of view and develop original ideas. It addresses such topics as: divine attributes, the origin of the universe, evolution and design, implications and puzzles of religious doctrines, morality and God, and the meaning of life.
