A Methodological Approach to the Epistemic Classification of Knowledge in Religious Sciences
Hacinebioglu, Ismail L.
Journal of Beliefs & Values, v28 n3 p235-241 Dec 2007
In many ways the religious sciences are named according to their subjects, methodologies and epistemologies. The historical and modern terminologies of such sciences sometimes create confusions in understanding what the epistemic and methodological differences are amongst them. In this article, the various grounds for religion in terms of theology and religious studies are highlighted in order to understand more clearly how knowledge is acquired in the religious sciences. Epistemological and methodological requirements need to be considered to evaluate logically the various subject matter and problems in religious thought.
