Critical Realism and Spirituality contextualizes, delineates, explores and critiques the turn to spirituality and religion in critical realism, which has been under way since the mid-1990s, as well as telling its story. It provides incisive discussion and analysis of the following broad questions:
• How does critical realism allow and facilitate the resolution of problems in the area of comparative religion?
• Can it help you to justify your own faith or belief?
• What are the implications of the new philosophy of metaReality for traditional religious studies and for how we organize and conduct our lives?
This book is essential reading for students and academics alike in Religious Studies, Theology and Philosophy.
