Abstract: Any serious discussion about what religion is would probably be endless. Nowadays there is fairly general consensus that, certainly in the case of religion, it is methodologically incorrect to insist that for any x, one should be able to state what feature (or set of features) the x should possess by virtue of which one is entitled to call it x. Consequently, rather than begin an inquiry into what religion is by defining the phenomenon, it seems better to start in some less formal way.
Description: This paper was delivered at a conference on the philosophy of religion, attended by a select working group, and held at All Hallows’ College, Dublin between the 16th and the 18th May 2012.
