Philosophy of Religion

Much of the earliest recorded philosophy, both east and west, has involved the exploration of religious beliefs and practices. Philosophy of religion concerns the analysis of religious concepts, beliefs, vocabulary and texts, arguments, and practices. It examines the existence and nature of God, aspects of religious experience, and the intersections of religion and science. Philosophy of religion can also include atheism and agnosticism as philosophical stances against religious beliefs.
