Current events confirm the need to understand religious ideas and institutions critically, yet radical doubts have been raised about how to proceed and about the ideal of critical thought itself. Meanwhile, some prominent scholars have urged that we view modern society as the object of criticism and a religious tradition as the basis for critique. Cambridge Studies in Religion and Critical Thought intends to address the interaction of critical thinking and religious traditions in this context of uncertainty and conflicting claims. The views offered, while varied, will uniformly constitute distinguished, philosophically-informed, and critical analyses of particular religious topics.
