2011 Special Issue

Philosophical Investigations special issue

Special Issue: Ethics and Religion

Contemporary philosophers tend to deal with ethics on the basis of a purely naturalistic view of the world. In other words, they think God irrelevant. In a special issue devoted to religion and ethics, Philosophical Investigations has brought together a number of philosophers who can offer an alternative to that prevailing tendency. A central topic available for discussion is whether ethics requires a religious grounding, although contributors also discuss the relation between religion and ethics in whatever aspect they find important.
