Philosophy of Religion is a discourse that straddles a variety of professional communities, debates, and traditions. I take it that this is one of its strengths. Yet, this can often, perhaps ironically, lead to narrowness in ideas, isolationism in disciplinary perspectives, and traditionalism in vision. Global Critical Philosophy of Religion offers a way forward because it expands the conversation partners involved and becomes more inclusive of the variety of disciplinary resources available for questions attending the philosophical study of cultural traditions termed “religious.” Even though challenging, and humbling, I am excited to incorporate Global Critical approaches into my teaching, my research, and my public intellectual work.
