The eleven articles of the present volume are to a large extent based upon papers delivered at a conference about Religion and Conflict, organized by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Religionsphilosophie (DGR). The book containing these papers, plus a number of additional articles, is divided into two parts, both of which tackle conflicts with, within one or among different religion(s). Whereas the first part is primarily devoted to major ontological, ethical and anthropological – and thus, in effect, more abstract and general – questions (for instance, questions about the nature, cause(s) and anthropological implications of religious conflicts), the second addresses a number of more specific issues, all of which are focused upon the chief question of how adequately to perceive and/or to solve religious conflicts in the sense described above. Discussed are, among other things, the concept of and the conflict between so-called ‘sacred texts’ in Christianity, Judaism and Islam; the conflict between naturalism and theology; the purported ‘absolutism’ of Christian monotheism as a source of interreligious conflict, etc.
