Religions philosophy
Philosophy of religion is the rational study of the meanings and judgments posed by religious foundations and their interpretations of natural and meta-natural phenomena such as creation, death, and the existence of the Creator. Philosophy of religion is a branch of philosophy related to questions related to religion, the nature and nature of God and the issue of his existence, examination of religious experience, analysis of religious vocabulary and texts, and the relationship between religion and science. It is an ancient method, found in the oldest manuscripts related to philosophy known to mankind, and it is linked to other branches of philosophy and general thought such as metaphysics, logic and history. Philosophy of religion is often discussed outside of academia through popular books and debates, especially on issues of God's existence and the problem of evil. Philosophy of religion differs from religious philosophy in that it aspires to discuss questions about the nature of religion as a whole rather than analyze problems posed by a particular belief system or belief. It is designed in such a way that it is debatable by both those who identify themselves as believers or non-believers. And as a branch of metaphysics Classical philosophy of religion was considered as part of metaphysics. In his Metaphysics, Aristotle described the first causes as one of the branches of his investigation. For Aristotle, the first cause was the immobile mover, the being that gave motion to the universe without being in itself in motion, and this was called God, especially when Aristotle's works surfaced again in the Middle Ages in the West. This debate over first motive and first cause was later called natural theology by the rationalist philosophers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Today, philosophers have adopted the term philosophy of religion for this topic, and it is usually taken as a separate field of specialization, although some philosophers, especially Catholics, still consider it a branch of metaphysics. In the historical relationship between the philosophy of religion and metaphysics, the traditional topics of religious discussion have been notions (such as gods, angels, supernatural forces and the like) as well as certain events, abilities or methods (such as the creation of the universe, the ability to do or know anything, communication between humans and gods, Thus.) Metaphysicians (and ontologists in particular) focused on understanding what it means that something exists - what constitutes of a thing as an entity, event, ability, or process. This is because many members of religious traditions believe in things that exist in an entirely different way from everyday beings, that the essences of religious belief create certain philosophical problems and define central metaphysical principles. Questions Theologians, unlike philosophers of religion, often take the existence of God as self-evident and explain, justify, or support religious claims with rational logic or innate metaphor and intuitive metaphor. In contrast, philosophers of religion test and critique the epistemological, logical, ethical, and aesthetic bases embedded in a religion's claims. Whereas the theologian analyzes rationally or empirically the issue of the nature of God, the philosopher in religion is more interested in asking what is knowable and in expressing an opinion regarding religious claims. Other questions taught in the philosophy of religion include what, if anything, gives us good reason to believe that a miracle happened, what is the relationship between faith and logic, what is the relationship between religion and morals, what is the state of religious language, and does the prayer of supplication (sometimes called the prayer of hope) make sense ? The philosophy of religion goes beyond metaphysics and addresses questions in various fields such as epistemology, philosophy of language, philosophical logic, and moral philosophy.
