    Justified Religious Difference: A Constructive Approach to Religious Diversity.Dirk-Martin Grube - 2015 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 76 (5):419-427.
    In this paper, I provide a novel approach to the issue of religious diversity: I reject classical pluralist approaches to the issue, such as John Hick’s, and argue that their attempts to construe commonalities between the religions are contrived. The reason that they attempt to find commonalities at all costs is that they presuppose a bivalent notion of truth according to which that which is different is false. I suggest that, in order to get a robust theory on religious diversity (...)

    Christian Theology Emerged by Way of a Kuhnian Paradigm Shift.Dirk-Martin Grube - 2018 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 79 (1-2):178-193.
    ABSTRACTThis paper argues that, historically, Christianity emerges out of Judaism by way of a paradigm shift in Thomas Kuhn’s sense of the word and that this emergence has normative consequences regarding the legitimacy of Christianity. Paradigm shifts are characterized by observational anomalies triggering particular kinds of theoretical modifications, e.g. meaning-changes of key terms, leading to a coherent re-disclosure of reality. The first Christians underwent such a paradigm shift: The anomalous experience that the dead Jesus has risen triggered theoretical modifications – (...)

    A Critical Reconstruction of Paul Tillich's Epistemology.Dirk-Martin Grube - 1997 - Religious Studies 33 (1):67-80.
    It is contended that Falk Wagner's famous charge that Tillich just posits the existence of the Unconditional without further argument overlooks the transcendental character of Tillich's early writings from the nineteen twenties. There the transcendental is utilized for legitimating the transcendent. Tillich's transcendental account resembles the ontological argument in that the question of the transcendent's existence is affirmed via an inquiry into the conceptual implications its concept harbours. In his later writings, Tillich's abandons this transcendentalism in favour of his 'critical (...)

    Justification Rather Than Truth: Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's Defence of Positive Religion in the Ring-Parable.Dirk-Martin Grube - 2005 - Bijdragen 66 (4):357-378.
    In chapter I, different types of interpretations of Lessing’s ring-parable are introduced. After a summary of them , the different types are sketched and their plausibility is evaluated . I suggest preferring the interpretation according to which Lessing suggests that, although the truth of religion is undecided, we can nevertheless be epistemically justified to continue believing in our Christian, Jewish, Muslim ...religion . In chapter II, I defend the philosophical tenability of Lessing’s solution. He does not advocate the philosophically untenable (...)

    Religious Experience After the Demise of Foundationalism.Dirk-Martin Grube - 1995 - Religious Studies 31 (1):37.
    In this article, I argue that foundationalist reconstructions of religious experience lose on all counts: First, philosophical defences of foundationalism are untenable. Second, the theological benefits that can be reaped from foundationalism come at too high a price. I show that both William Alston's and Alvin Plantinga's foundationalism leads to sceptical conclusions. Third, I argue that the epistemic implications of foundationalist reconstructions of religious experience are incompatible with Christian ontology. Criticizing the account Plantinga develops in his books on warrant, I (...)

    Luthers reformatorischer Durchbruch. Zur Auseinandersetzung mit Oswald Bayers Promissio-Verständnis.Dirk-Martin Grube - 2006 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 48 (1):33-50.
    ZusammenfassungIn diesem Beitrag konzentriere ich mich auf Bayers Interpretation von Luthers Rechtfertigungsverständnis als promissio. In Teil I skizziere ich Bayers zentralen Gedanken, dass dieser Begriff als performativer Sprechakt in Austins Sinne verstanden werden muss, d.h. als ein Akt, der durch seinen Vollzug neue 〉Tatsachen〈 konstituiert und nicht nur schon existierende Tatsachen registriert. Die Worte der Absolution registrieren nicht, dass der Sünder gerechtfertigt ist, sondern vollziehen die Rechtfertigung, wenn sie im richtigen Kontext gesprochen werden.In Teil II beurteile ich die Konsequenzen dieser (...)

    Reconstructing the Dialectics in Karl Barth's 'Epistle to the Romans' the Role of Transcendental Arguments in Theological Theorizing.Dirk-Martin Grube - 2008 - Bijdragen 69 (2):127-146.
    In Karl Barth’s famous ‘Epistle to the Romans’, Second edition, the negation seems to be dominant: Each and every possibility to ‘have’ God, i.e. to cognize Him, is denied. More precisely speaking, Barth proposes a dialectics of negation and affirmation within which the negation seems to be dominant: He alludes frequently to the possibility to cognise God but then denies that possibility. An important question in Barth-research is thus how this dialectics is to be interpreted. Most Barth-researchers approach this question (...)

    God or the Subject? Karl Barth's Critique of the “Turn to the Subject”.Dirk-Martin Grube - 2008 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 49 (3):308-324.
    SummaryIn this article, I argue that Barth resists the modern “turn to the subject” and that important features of his approach can be explained as being motivated by this resistance. Under the parameters of this “turn”, the human subject occupies a position which should be reserved for God. As an antidote to this turn, Barth suggests an exchange of subjects: The role that the subject occupies under subjectivist parameters should be taken over by a Trinitarian notion of God. This suggestion (...)

    The relationship between religion and contingency is investigated historically and systematically.

Its systematic part analyses how this relationship should be currently interpreted.

  18. Refuting the Evidentialist Challenge to Religion: A Critique Inspired by William James.Dirk-Martin Grube - 2003 - Ars Disputandi 3.
    In this article, evidentialism is refuted by relying on William James’ article ‘The Will to Believe’. After an introduction into the notion of ‘evidentialism’ and James’ attack on it , I distinguish between two sorts of evidentialisms, truth-oriented evidentialism and quiescent evidentialism . In 2.3–2.5, I criticize these forms of evidentialism on the grounds that the first has very limited applicability and the second leads to absurd consequences when applied in the moral domain. In section 3, the evidentialist challenge to (...)
