Knowing the Real

John Hick on the Cognitivity of Religions and Religious Pluralism


Kenneth T. Rose

Knowing the Real analytically and critically approaches two themes central to John Hick's thought: the cognitivity of religions and religious pluralism. Hick's early attempts to conceive that which can count as a verifying eschatological experience led him to call for a Copernican revolution in theology. In response to criticism that this call aroused, Hick developed a theory of religious pluralism, based on a reading of Kant, that he calls the pluralistic hypothesis.
