Disagreement, Deference, and Religious Commitment

John Pittard

  • Offers an assessment of disagreement-motivated religious skepticism that engages with and contributes to both the epistemology of disagreement and the epistemology of religious belief
  • Deploys tools of formal epistemology to shed light on the rational significance of disagreement while illustrating key ideas with helpful examples
  • Identifies and explores neglected problems in determining how to apply conciliatory policies to real-world religious disputes
