Editorial Reviews


The remarkable and impressive stream of thought that constitutes Robert Neville s lifework flows through these pages I suspect that most readers of Realism in Religion will experience the same admiration mingled with anticipation that I did when I turned the last page. Michael L. Raposa, The Pluralist
this work is an ideal entry to Robert Neville s wide-ranging thought as a whole Most every page is rich in detail and enormously suggestive. The work is open enough in style to invite a reader to make corrections that are true to that person s experiential contexts. Yet it is persuasive enough that most readers will find themselves carrying over much of value and importance from the text to their own understanding of religion and reality. American Journal of Theology and Philosophy
a provocative book, written from a Peircean perspective, and it puts the lie to the claim that metaphysical claims and pragmatism do not mix. International Journal for Philosophy of Religion
This compilation of essays culled together from Neville s accomplished career offers an avenue for acquainting readers with some of his basic insights and contributions to the fields of philosophy and theology Frequently, such compilations fail to achieve a complementary whole, but nothing could be further from the case here. Divided into three parts realism and truth, realism in pragmatism, and realism in religion and metaphysics each part provides the occasion for the next. Religious Studies Review
Neville demonstrates great breadth of knowledge about both philosophy and theology in this work, and he develops his ideas in a creative and interesting way. CHOICE"

From the Back Cover

Religion is basic to the human condition, according to this philosophy of religion from a pragmatist's perspective. While pragmatist thinkers have often been cool to religious claims, Robert Cummings Neville holds that a theology of truth can emerge from this tradition. Standing against the typical nominalist view that regards religious claims as concepts or structures of language, Neville argues that there can be significant and well-tested hypotheses about what is true in religious matters. He brings this theology to bear on questions of God, divine creation, divine nature and will, and eternity. Using the work of pragmatists Peirce and Whitehead in particular to ground his philosophy of religion, Neville surveys a wide swath of twentieth-century theology and current trends, from Barth and Tillich to liberal and postliberal theology, systematic theology, concepts of God, and approaches to scripture.
