Webb Publishes Book: ‘A Comparative Doxastic-Practice Epistemology of Religious Experience’

Mark Webb, Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy, takes a theoretical enterprise in Christian philosophy of religion and applies it to Buddhism in his new book, “A Comparative Doxastic-Practice Epistemology of Religious Experience”. Webb explores Christian and Buddhist testimony and how the likelihood of self-deception, self-delusion, imaginative elaboration and the like constitutes a defeating condition, which Webb shows to have less scope for operation in the Buddhist case than in the Christian case.
