What Future for the Philosophy of Religion?

Editor: Dr Russell Re Manning (Bath Spa University, UK)

 

We are inviting papers for publication in this special issue of Palgrave Communications, published by Palgrave Macmillan (https://www.nature.com/palcomms).

We are living through an exciting time for the philosophy of religion: a time of crisis. There is, it seems, widespread discontent within the discipline about its current state and future directions – indeed about whether it even has a future whatsoever.

“In defense of close reading or, reading the minuscule”

This panel proposes to read texts to the letter, to risk close reading as a challenging methodology. In le Risque de la lettre, Isabelle Alfandary explains that “the negativity of writing depends on the otherness that is always already introduced at the heart of an impure and heterogeneous system, one it contributes to shaping—language. Writing does not go without a risk, the risk literature and language run through writing lies at the heart of language itself, and constitutes language as risk. From this point of view the literature of the letter carries the trace of the risk inherent to any act of speech” (Alfandary 2012, 27). Besides, reading a text to the letter, whatever its nature, means having it run the risk of writing.

BodyWorks takes an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to representations of bodies, embodiment and sensory experience across literature and culture. In doing so, we welcome responses from a range of disciplines, including cultural studies, literary studies, philosophy, arts, history, education, media, social sciences and medical humanities. Through this breadth of intellectual inquiry, the event aims to draw together a range of approaches and methodologies for exploring various facets of the contemporary shift towards studies of the body and emotions in the humanities.

There is a famous parable that goes something like this: When six blind people came across an elephant, they were curious to know more about it. Since they would not be able to see it, they decided to touch and feel it anyway.  "Hey, the elephant feels like a tree trunk” said the person who touched his leg. "Oh, no! it is like a rope," said the second one who touched the tail. "Oh, no! it is like a thick branch of a tree," said the one who touched the trunk of the elephant. "It is like a big hand fan" said the fourth person who touched the ear of the elephant. "It is like a huge wall," said the fifth person who touched the belly of the elephant. "It is like a solid pipe," said the sixth person who touched the tusk of the elephant.
