I have been teaching Philosophy of Religion for many years, but have been frustrated that the subject area frequently is focused in a way that valorizes beliefs and cognitive and analytical approaches to the subject, which miss much of what religions are about. Western rationalism, by focusing methodologically on logical analysis, and western empiricism, by focusing methodologically  on perception, both miss the point when discussing religions. The global critical approach allows scholarship to focus more on religious practices than on religious beliefs.
