ABSTRACT. The philosophy of religion, as this is understood in the modern empiricist Anglo-American tradition of philosophy, is an examination of the meaning and justification of central religious claims. Most religions make claims about the cause of the existence of things, about the most fundamental principles governing the world, and about the purpose of human life. They claim that there is a God, that he intervenes in history from time to time; that after humans die, they have a new life, that God has revealed certain important truths to the Christian church or in the Quran, and so on.
