Panel: Existence of God and Other Deities | Closer to Truth

Synopsis

How do Hindu, African, Islamic, and Jewish traditions address the existence of God and other deities? How can we know God/deities? What do religious and mystical experiences tell us? Do all religions worship the same God? A panel of distinguished philosophers of religion joins host Robert Lawrence Kuhn to discuss these questions and more.

This panel features Jessica Frazier (University of Oxford), Motsamai Molefe (University of Fort Hare), Nazif Muhtaroğlu (Syracuse University), and Samuel Lebens (University of Haifa).

The Global Philosophy of Religion Project aims to make the philosophy of religion a truly global field by promoting the scholarly work of researchers from underrepresented regions and religious traditions. It is led by Professor Yujin Nagasawa and hosted by the University of Birmingham. This interview was conducted by Robert Lawrence Kuhn, host of Closer To Truth.

This project was made possible in part through the support of a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
