Philosophy of Religion In Northern Europe

The post-secular condition raises new challenges for academic co-operation. Philosophy of Religion has become a growing field of research, connecting scholars from the Humanities and Social Sciences in inter-disciplinary research. Recognising the need for closer co-operation between philosophy and theology, sociology, and religious studies, researchers from all over Northern Europe established the research network Philosophy of Religion in Northern Europe [PRINE] in 2007.

Purpose

  • to establish philosophy of religion as a common field of research across prior boundaries of method and discipline (philosophy, theology, religious studies, religion & science, etc.)
  • to define new challenges in philosophy of religion emerging through the encounter between different religions in Northern Europe and globally throughout the 21st century

  • to establish a forum for discussion among young researchers and give them the opportunity to discuss their work with some of the best senior scholars in their field.

Funding

Philosophy of Religion In Northern Europe [PRINE] is funded by Nordforsk for the period 2007-2010
