Religious epistemology: Naturalizing a point of view

Heythrop Journal 42 (4):480–488 (2001)
I construct and describe an epistemology for the religious – a naturalized epistemology – based on recent work in epistemics. Two points of view exemplary of religious thought are analyzed , and the normative/descriptive distinction in epistemology utilized to bolster the contention that the religious requires a less normative, more descriptive concomitant epistemology. I conclude that our reluctance to grapple with difficult ontological questions is directly related to the standard normative epistemology of the Anglo‐American analytic tradition, and I also conclude that tradition is of little use to us in attempting to develop an epistemology of the religious
